The Ten Best Music Photographers in St. Louis: Accepting Nominations Now

We admit some bias here, though Jason is a hell of a photographer.
Yesterday, Complex published its list of the 50 Greatest Music Photographers Right Now. Alternate title: The 50 Greatest Music Photographers Right Now in New York or LA. There were a few nods tossed at the other 99.9% of the planet, including the very well deserved inclusion of St. Louis' Todd Owyoung at number three. But mostly that was it. There is some stunning music photography going on everywhere, and I am not just rooting for the home team when I say that St. Louis has way, way more than its share of it.

Update: To clarify -- this is just the nomination process. Once someone's name has been mentioned, there's no need to submit him or her again. We will compile a list of finalists and you can vote later.

So we thought we'd celebrate the work being done here with a rundown of the best music photogs working in St. Louis right now. However, we are preposterously biased here -- many of these folks are our colleagues and friends. So we're looking to you, the readers, for help deciding who belongs.

To nominate someone: Write his or her name in the comments below or email music@riverfronttimes.com with the subject line "STL Music Photographer Nomination."

To nominate yourself: Please do! If you think you belong on this list, don't hesitate to say so. You may also put your own name in the comments or email music@riverfronttimes.com with the subject line "STL Music Photographer Nomination." Please include contact information in your email so that we can get in touch with you if you make the cut.

Sioux Loncaric-Mullins took awesome promo photos of my band. Which isn't easy because anytime I'm around a camera, I start looking frumpy and uncomfortable.

Sioux Loncaric-Mullins from Nocturnal Hall Music.

The site is from Germany but the Photographer (Sioux Loncaric-Mullins) is from St. Louis.

She makes St. Louis look like a place it is cool to play music in.

Without a doubt Rhonda Pierce should be considered. Many have the gear and Photoshop. Very few have an eye like hers!

Matthew Prather

I have known him for quite a long time and he is a great friend.  I remember him carrying around his damn camera, annoying us, as well security,  to let him shoot backstage at shows all the way back in 1987.  Between Kennedy's, the original Pop's, 1227, Mississippi Nights, etc  he lived and breathed music and photographing the scene.  Especially the alternative and grunge scene of the 1990's.  Some of his photos that hung on Mississippi Nights walls are in someones collection right now and they are very lucky.  I think he started working at 105.7 the Point right when it started in Saint Louis and he took total advantage of the access granted to him.
