My Opening Reception Talk About Music Photography

It was fun to talk about how I got into music photography as a kid and share some of the stories behind the photos in Lights, Camera, Rock ‘n’ Roll the other night at the Muskegon Musuem of Art. If you’d like to check it out, just click below……

Recent Press on Lights, Camera, Rock 'n' Roll

Just wanted to share some of the recent press coverage on my music photography exhibition Lights, Camera, Rock ‘n’ Roll at the Muskegon Art Museum now through Sunday, September 1, 2019.

This first clip is from My West Michigan on WZZM 13. Kirk Montgomery and I take a tour of the exhibition a day before it opens to the public.

My old friend, Andy O’ Reilly, share war stories from some of the shows I photographed for The Muskegon Channel. He and I go back 30 years to when we were both board ops working at 94.5 KLQ in Grand Rapids.

I had a great time chatting with Todd Chance on Morning Mix about the exhibition.

Jesse Bruce of Classic Rock WMPA 93.1 had a fun chat about how I got into music photography and some of the most memorable shows I photographed over the last 30 years.

For the last 10 years, I’ve been photographing concerts here in West Michigan for GRNow.com. Thanks, CJ, Kerhington and GRNow.com for the nice write up on Lights, Camera, Rock ‘n’ Roll! http://www.grnow.com/get-to-grknow-paul-jendrasiak/

Some Recent Prints

Love this! It's always fun to see how folks display the prints I do up for them! This one is from Amanda. Love seeing Zakk Wylde, Tony Iommi, Dimebag, Ivan from Five Finger Death Punch, Alice Cooper, and Rob Halford rocking the walls!

Here's a brushed metal one I did up of the photo I took of Dimebag Darrell back in 1991 for John.

Dimebag Darrell Abbott Pantera

Did up this 16x20 of James Hetfield of Metallica that I took on the 1991 Black album tour for Thomas.

Morrissey in 1992 at his midnight record release on brushed metal for Abbey.

Some Cool News!

I got a call last week letting me know that two photos I took of James and Kirk of Metallica back when I was just 19 in 1991 from opening night of the Black album tour in Musekgon, Michigan, will be part of guitar string maker Ernie Ball's "An Ernie Ball Original" campaign.

George Lynch

When I was a skinny, long haired, guitar playing punk kid, next to Eddie Van Halen, George Lynch was my favorite guitar player! After I traded my guitar for a camera, it was a total blast to photograph him a few times during the early 90s when Lynch Mob came through the area.

I'm pretty stoked that George wanted to include a print one of the shots I took back then as one of the pre-order options for his new release Shadow Train.

My First 10

Welcome! :-)

Glad you could stop by!

Each week, I'll have 10 new photos available for 1 week only of some of my favorite rock stars I've photographed over the last 25 years that you can get a fine art print of on museum quality archival photo paper, canvas or aluminum for you to enjoy in your home or to give as a gift.

For my first 10, I've selected shots of Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, Dimebag Darrell Abbott of Pantera, Elton John, James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett of Metallica, John Mayer, Layne Staley from Alice in Chains, Buddy Guy, Ronnie James Dio when he was in Black Sabbath, and Morrissey. These will be available for you until Sunday, March 8, 2015.

I sincerely hope you find a piece you would enjoy having in your home of giving as a gift to a fellow music lover!
