    Brad Elterman is a professional photographer from California, who started his incredible career at the age of 16 when his first image was published. It was a photo of Bob Dylan in concert in 1974 and it was his ticket to the backstage of the rock ‘n’ roll world.

    The artist focused on candid moments of celebrities. “I wasn’t a traditional rock ‘n’ roll photographer because I didn’t give a shit about taking a photograph of someone holding a guitar,” he told vice. That’s what all the other photographers at the time were doing, and I wasn’t interested in those generic concert pictures. I photographed backstage—those were the really exciting pictures that told a story; those were the images that the magazines were craving.”

    Now, 40 years later, Brad Elterman is still an incredibly popular photographer whose style has not changed much. “It hasn’t changed at all. Most of the editors today tell me not to change anything and shoot it just like I was back there in 1977 with Joan Jett.”
