Question The Answers Podcast: Episode #11 – Alan Snodgrass

Alan Snodgrass is not related to Jon Snodgrass, so stop asking him!!!

Alan Snodgrass has been documenting Punk Rock shows for the better part the last few decades, having started in his youth while living in Southern California and attending shows with Black Flag, D.R.I, and The Adolescents to name a few. Fast forward to now, he has been to countless shows, and continues to keep his camera ready for just the right moment, both as a professional and simply for his own enjoyment. For a few years now, Alan has been an in-house photo journalist for New Noise Magazine and The Vinyl District, but also has his own website/blog that he updates rather frequently (well … in the before times at least).

I had seen the name Alan Snodgrass pop up quite a lot over the years, as well as his photos, and was formally introduced a few years back through a bandmate, and have since become friends. As an avid show-goer myself, I would find myself running into Alan at a random shows in the Bay Area like Charger and American Steel, which was always a pleasant surprise. Tsunami Bomb has been lucky enough to have him photograph us a few times, and he’s always made us look good.

During this episode, we dig into a bit of the world of being a concert photographer, and what that contribution to the music scene ultimately is. We discuss some of the shows he’s shot over the years and show he got into doing it, and he shares some of his photos through the video. Alan tells me about some of his favorite bands that may or may not be as well known to others, and he also gives me his top five desert island albums.
