This week world-renown rock and roll photographer Dustin Rabin joins the Light Artists podcast! We discuss his journey into the genre, and we get a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes world of photographing musicians. Interestingly, we also get into some of the myths, prejudices, and misconceptions often associated with the “wild” life of musicians.
