#137 – Rob Shanahan – Music Photographer – Volume One

Rob Shanahan is so good at taking pictures, Ringo Starr has selected him as his personal photographer.  For the last 15 years, Shanahan’s work has appeared in countless music magazines, on album covers and inside CD booklets.  Now he’s put together his first collection of photographs – appropriately titled Volume One. Through his lens we see a wide array of artists, including legends like Paul McCartney, Keith Richards, Eddie Van Halen, and Elton John, to current pop stars like Christina Aguilera, Avril Lavigne and Jason Mraz. Shanahan talks to Icon Fetch about the string of events that led him to meeting the Beatles’ drummer, and also about getting Ringo together with Stones’ drummer Charlie Watts for afternoon tea.
