On this day in 1974β€” The first concert I photographed. I was 15. New Riders of the Purple Sage Academy of Music 11/29/74 . . . Kodak Instamatic, 126 film cartridge and magic cube flash . I started going to concerts the previous Summer, in fact the second show I went to was NRPS/Commander Cody in Central Park, NY. I was so taken by these experiences I wanted to document it. At this show I brought my little Kodak and so it began. . . . . . . @nrpsarchive #davidnelson #johndawson #academyofmusic #newridersofthepurplesage #kodak126 #filmcamera #filmphotography #grainisgood #kodakinstamatic #instafilm #iconic Β Β #musicphotographer #longstrangetrip πŸ“Έ #minkinphotography
On this dayβ€”and many other days in the fall, '77 to Summer '78. . My concerts #93 to #118 . I photographed most of these shows. I didn't have any special access, it was all raw determination, sleep out at night for tickets, get to the gig early, waiting, waiting and more waiting. But once the show began it was All Worth It! . My camera then was a Minolta 35mm film camera. All manualβ€”exposure and focus. Black and negatives hand processed in my home darkroom. You really had to know what you were doing and wouldn't see the results till the next day. I'd maybe shoot 72-144 shots per show. That's it. In the film days you had to be Dead On and know your shit! . . . . . @jerrygarcia @gratefuldead #hottuna #thosewerethedays #minoltasrt101 #filmcamera #musicphotographer #knowyourshit #trix400 #trixfilm πŸ“Έ #minkinphotography

Almost on this day in 1976! Hot Tuna Capitol Theatre, Passaic 11/20/76 . On this night I had my first backstage experience. My friend's brother gave us passes for this Hot Tuna show at the Capitol. I was 17 and fearless as I walked into the band's dressing room and sat down on a couch. I shot a few pics of Jorma and he didn't seem to mind so I stayed and watched them get ready for the show. As time went on we became friends and that relationship continues to this day.
