Weintrob Photography Exhibit to Benefit NOMC
Good Thoughts Printing Studio and the Guitar Cellar present the opening reception of a new photography exhibit featuring the work of music photographer Michael Weintrob.
The opening reception is on Thursday, October 25 from 6PM – 10PM at the Guitar Cellar on the Boulder's Hill. The event will feature live music beginning at 7 PM. The items exhibited, which will be on display and available for purchase through November 1st, span over a decade of Weintrob's rock photography. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of photos will go to benefit The New Orleans Musician Clinic.
In collaboration with LSU Healthcare Network and Daughters of Charity Services of New Orleans, The New Orleans Musicians' Clinic (NOMC) provides access to health and social welfare services for the local music community. Since 1998, NOMC has played a pivotal role in sustaining the health of New Orleans musicians. As housing, family and financial challenges continue, we strive to remain a core resource for the music community. From providing medical services to funding gigs, their response to the needs of musicians knows no boundaries.
About Michael Weintrob:
Over the past decade Michael has been shooting live concerts, portraits, events and world culture. His images have appeared in publications including Rolling Stone, Spin, Mojo, Billboard, Relix, Downbeat, Paste and Outside. Directly after graduating Colorado State University, Michael became a house photographer for the City of Denver Theaters and Arenas Division, which includes the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater and other prestigious venues in and around Denver, Colorado.
In addition to being a staff photographer for Gibson Guitars in New York, Weintrob's images have graced album covers of famous musicians such as Burning Spear, Taj Majal Trio, Gerorge Porter Jr., Karl Denson, the Doobie Brothers, Gov't Mule, Charlie Hunter, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Umphrey's McGee.
What separates Michael from other photographers is his ability to be at the right place at the right time. "When you take a photograph you've got to be able to capture the energy of an instant that is gone in a second."
Weintrob's photo studio is located in Brooklyn, New York.
