About Photos With Stories: The Rock and Roll Photography of Clayton Call
Hosted by Jay Blakesberg
Clayton Call has been a fan of live music since seeing his first concert with The Byrds in 1966. He got a camera in the mid 1970s, and started capturing images of shows he attended. This turned in to a passion that led to having his work published, and shooting an increasingly wide variety of bands and genres. Adding to the variety were stints as house photographer for venues like the Berkeley Square, The Warfield Theater, and The Fillmore. He discovered The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in 1990, and photographed the festival for 24 years.
