Local man about town, music promoter, music fiend, and all-around nice guy Mark C. Austin debuts his new photo exhibit, Print Job – A Collection of Music Photography, at Cactus Music’s Record Ranch Gallery in Houston this Friday (5.31.13) from 6-9pm. Austin has been a long-time music photographer and has had access to many bands that eventually found fame (such as industry punching bags Kings of Leon). This access allowed him to capture some impressive images over the years, and this collection will undoubtedly include some of his best photographs.
Here’s some of the press release about Print Job:
Get a front-row and on-stage perspective on popular music’s most celebrated performers with Print Job – A Collection of Music Photography by Mark C. Austin, an exhibition to open at The Record Ranch Gallery inside Cactus Music, 2110 Portsmouth, on Friday, May 31st. The exhibit features unique images at live music venues around the country. Images include everything from Willie to Sir Paul to St. Vincent. In Print Job, Austin shares some of the more unique captures of the last two years of his escapades.
“Some might call my desire to capture these live music moments an obsession. I’d agree. It’s an obsession that I take pride in. For me, it’s more than just the experience of being there, it’s grabbing a little piece of that show and taking it home.” – Mark C. Austin
Austin’s photos have appeared in Paste, SPIN, and Rolling Stone magazines. His prints will be for sale, so bring some extra coin.
