About the Photographer

About the Photographer

The photographer, Ken Jackson, is a native of the San Francisco Bay Area. Born in Concord in the East Bay in 1954, the Jackson family moved to San Jose in 1959 where Ken lived until 1999, relocating to Sacramento at that time, fleeing the outrageously high housing costs of the Bay Area.

Ken Jackson first became interested in photography in 1976. He purchased his first camera, an Olympus OM-1 manual 35mm SLR, through his good friend Tim who was in the U.S. Air Force stationed in Okinawa, Japan. He brought the camera with him to the Paul McCartney and Wings concert at the Cow Palace in San Francisco 1976 to try and capture the memory of the show. Unfortunately, that show produced no usable photographs, serving as a learning process of what didn't work in taking available light photos. But that learning experience paid off at the next concert, the band Yes at the same venue. Photos from that concert are available here.

In 1978, Ken Jackson began working as a volunteer at an alternative monthly newspaper in San Jose called Groundswell News. During his time with the newspaper, Ken polished his photographic skills while also contributing concert reviews and lifestyle articles. About this time Ken began selling his concert photographs through local record stores and specialty shops, as well as college flea markets. Ken also appeared on a local cable TV show called "Rock Talk" around this time to showcase his photographs.

Ken Jackson took photographs of concerts until the mid 1980's when he became disillusioned with most live performances. "I feel that I was lucky to be present during the pinnacle of live rock performances: great music, wonderful visual effects, reasonable ticket prices all combining for an experience that can never be matched."

Ken and Stella, his wife, (mostly Stella as she does the majority of the work in scanning and prepping the images from slides) are always updating this site from the roughly 4000 images available in their archives of slides and negatives.

"Please drop us an email and say hello. Let us know your fondest concert memory and you will see your comments here online. Thanks to all our customers and visitors over the years and enjoy the shows."
