Episode 6: Steven Walker - Rocking Photography

Moving to America from England almost four years ago was a risky move for him and his family, but Steven Walker made it work because he knew it would. Persistence, hard work, and a love for music and photography were key ingredients. His vision was for a gallery focused on offering high quality classic rock & roll photography as well as fossils, rocks, and minerals. He knew Austin was the place to do it and now Modern Rocks is one of the best galleries in town. We had a great conversation filled with many lessons and insights into the world of photography, running a successful gallery, and a life well lived.

Some of the subjects we discuss:

  • Origins of the gallery
  • A life in music, touring the US
  • Getting into photography
  • Moving to America
  • Kirk Weddle/Nevermind
  • Overnight notoriety
  • Scott Newton archive
  • Freedom/Simplicity of the past
  • Michael Zagaris
  • Owning a gallery
  • Selling the work
  • Gallery vs. Solo
  • Social Networking
  • Instagram
  • Up next-Contact Sheets
  • Film to digital
