Jim Gilbert has been a photographer on and off for nearly 30 years. After concentrating on landscapes and portraits, Jim turned his focus to music photography. In doing so, Jim has become known throughout New York State as one of the more professional concert photographers on the scene. Music photography made a lot of sense as he has been an avid concert goer for over 20 years; he has over 50 Phish and Grateful Dead shows and more than his fair share of metal shows under his belt.
In the past year, he has photographed over 200 bands including legends such as BB King, Charlie Daniels, Phil Lesh and Rob Zombie; his work covers all genres of music. He has been able to be on-stage to shoot many world-renowned acts and continues to love photographing up-and-coming acts that come through Upstate New York.
