John Ford

A rockstar in his own right. I am remembering him today, along with all the concerts I worked with him at RCA. Before I was in the picture he was touring with Elvis...wish I good have done one of those with him. Later he was heading up something at RCA in New York. I really should have kept in touch with him after I left Vancouver...he would have opened a lot of doors for me.

New photo alert...I am unveiling this shot for the first time...

...that's John Ford on the far right and if you don't know the musician on the far left side, go away. Or ask someone to tell you who he is. Or you can look through this page you can find out who he is and no longer look foolish.


John Ford is in several sections of Everybody I Shot Is Dead. Pick up your copy now.

John Ford

John Ford of RCA was one of my most frequent clients when I shooting concerts in Vancouver. Today I am celebrating John's birthday - he is number 2 of the 4 people I've photographed that have birthdays on July 19th. It was just a couple of weeks ago that I found out John passed away in October. The last time I spoke with him was when my book, Everybody I Shot Is Dead, came out and I was having an exhibit in Vancouver. We had a nice chat on the phone but sadly he declined my invite so I didn't get to see him in person. His presence is in the book in some of the backstage shots, such as this one with John Lee Hooker. John is cool dude on the right.

I loved working with John. He was very loyal to my work and was always professional and thankful for the work I did for him.
