About Steve Schneider Photography

Photographer Steve Schneider has turned a fondness for Rock and Roll into a lifetime of concert documentation. His catalogue includes Rock legends from several decades frozen in revealing and dramatic action. Artists include Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Jeff Beck, Pete Townsend, Tom Petty, Merle Haggard, Kurt Cobain, Eddie Vedder, Soundgarden, Bonnie Raitt, Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris, Stevie Ray Vaughn, The Grateful Dead and many, many more. Most were shot in the Northwest, Steve’s residence since 1979.

Steve’s close association with The Grateful Dead goes back to the mid 70's when the band first allowed him access; his photos have been published on their CDs & DVDs and in a recent Jay Blakesburg collection, Eyes of the World, 2017.

Steve’s career has included stints working for UPI, Gannett News Service, Reuters, USA Today,and Sipa Press as well as long term commitments to corporate assignments and conventions.

 His work has appeared in various publications including TIME magazine, which, after Jerry Garcia’s death in 1995, ran Steve’s shot of Garcia at his last Seattle concert. In Seattle, he is represented by Jeffrey Moose.
