About Kevin Estrada...
"Ever since I was a kid, I wanted to be a rock photographer. All my friends wanted to be Eddie Van Halen, but I wanted to be the guy who was snapping photos of Eddie Van Halen. I seemed to always want to collect things, to document things – to somehow hold on to that moment and make it last forever. From old gig flyers to concert jerseys to concert programs and more. For the past 30 years, I have documented many special moments that will never happen again - in concert, backstage, on the road and in the studio. I’m not sure why photography is so important to me. I guess I hate to see great moments in life disappear. Rock Music has given me most of the great moments of my life, so the best thing I can do is capture those special moments on film. That’s what I’ve spent my entire working life doing, and I’m grateful to have the ability to share my work with the world.”
For over three decades, Kevin Estrada's photos have been an important part of rock n' roll history. Kevin has chronicled some truly amazing moments - from Johnny Cash's last recorded sessions to the breakthrough of Nirvana to the reunion of Motley Crue to The Red Hot Chili Peppers time warp back to the '60s. Artists such as The Cure, Slayer, KoRn, John Fogerty, and B.B. King have given Kevin the privilege of documenting their recording processes. His photos have adorned the pages of prestigious publications including Rolling Stone, Spin, Cream, Circus, Hit Parader, Kerrang!, Revolver, and many more.
Kevin’s has dedicated his life to seeing the Rock world through his lens, now he wants to share with you what he has been seeing all these years.
