The 50 Greatest Music Photographers Right Now

1. RUKES

Location: Everywhere and nowhere (according to his Twitter)

Rukes calls himself "the #1 DJ (Photographer)," and we'd have to agree, except without the parentheses, and "DJ" would be optional. It would be impossible to have a conversation about music photography without bringing up RUKES. People started to notice him from photos he took as official concert photographer for Deadmau5 (hence the "Everywhere and nowhere" — he's always on the road), but since then he's photographed Avicii, Skrillex, Kaskade, Swedish House Mafia, Afrojack, and more at historic concerts, raves, and festivals. If there's anyone who's expertly documenting the takeover of electronic dance music worldwide, it's RUKES.
