Speaker: Rocky Schenck
At the age of thirteen, Rocky Schenck began a lifelong interest in motion pictures and photography, watching vintage films on television as often as possible. In his early teens, he began writing, directing and photographing short experimental films and learning still photography while shooting production stills on the sets of his movies. His fascination with the art of filmmaking and photography motivated a transition to Los Angeles. Artists in the motion picture, musical, literary and theatrical worlds soon began to approach Schenck for their projects, A gallery owner in New York discovered Schenck’s work and gave him his first one man photography exhibition. Since then, Rocky has continued to show in galleries around the world and his work is now included in several prestigious museums and private collections.
In the music and entertainment world, Schenck has photographed several hundred album covers and has written and directed over 150 music videos.
