27. The Cobrasnake
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Mark Hunter a.k.a the Cobrasnake is most known for his nightlife photographs, but shooting at exclusive clubs and parties in Hollywood led him directly into the realm of music photography. He regularly shoots Steve Aoki's weekly Dim Mak Records concert series, he's photographed Katy Perry and the Kills on tour, and he's taken some of the best live photos of Coachella Music Festival to ever be taken. He continues to photograph the live event in all capacities, but his music photographs cannot be overlooked, even if simply by virtue of his incredible access to artists on and offstage.
