Prince at First Avenue, 1983
A rare photograph of Prince, a frequent Riot House guest in the '70s, shot at First Avenue nightclub in Minneapolis in 1983.
During his 30 years in the photography business, Jimmy Steinfeldt has worked with everyone from Miles Davis to the Ramones. Born in Minneapolis, he first focused and clicked at age 14. After college he shot his way through many long road-trips and rock concerts armed with his first real camera. A one hundred dollar Minolta!
Jimmy was first published in 1985 in SPIN magazine. In that same year Rolling Stone published one of his photographs of Madonna, which he credits as a major boost to his career. In 1986 his dreams as a music fan and photographer came true when Rolling Stone published his photo of Bob Dylan. CD covers followed from this exposure: Miles Davis, Willie Nelson, John Denver, Dee Dee Ramone and many others. Currently, Elusive Studios, in the canyons of Hollywood, is his base of operations and has become a haven for music, film and television artists.
