17. Chris Polk

Location: Los Angeles, CA

Christopher Polk began his explorations in photography at a young age, documenting surfing and surfers. Early on, he gained experience in capturing a moment quickly, before it disappears, which is essential to music photography. Whether shooting in film or digital, Chris' work captures every high point in a live show, and his photographs of Snoop Dogg, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Rihanna, and Coldplay show it.
