Artist Shots

Don Hunstein was Columbia Record's main staff photographer for close to 30 years. Most of Don Hunstein's career at Columbia Records involved photographing well-known recording artists on Columbia's roster. Whether in recording studions, at performances or in their homes, Hunstein spent many moments waiting, much like a photojournalist would, for the right shot. Some photographes were used for publicity, but many ended up in the Columbia archives, captured moments in music history.
