Two decades of navigating the music business and transforming the storytelling of image, photographer Michael Weintrob’s work spans all aspects of industry.
Created in the field where he has shot over 5,000 artists in-concert or his Brooklyn studio, Weintrob’s work covers everything from advertising to editorial needs, showcasing the live element of performance and conceptual campaigns of portraiture like his Instrumenthead series which is now over 400 artists strong.
Advertising clients like Jakprints, Jam Cruise and the World Games rely on Weintrob to deliver the essence of their story as do editorial clients Downbeat, Relix, Spin, Rolling Stone, Billboard and The New York Times.
Weintrob has acted as house photographer for Red Rocks Amphitheater, The Festival Network, the CareFusion Jazz Festival Series, and Bluegrass Underground, and has been the house pick for OZ Nashville’s Brave New Art celebrating its inaugural season.
Major exhibitions of work have been hosted in Spain by the US Consulate, in New Orleans during the Jazz and Heritage Festival, and in Charleston for the Spoleto Art Festival as well as within the Newport Jazz Festival. These exhibitions have financially benefitted multiple charities over the years including the New Orleans Musicians’ Assistance Foundation, the Tipitina’s Foundation, the Music Maker Foundation and the Newport Festivals Foundation with plans to continue giving as long as there are stories to tell.
