During their interview, Adam and Lisa talked about taking photos of some of the greatest concerts ever to be held in Colorado, getting to know artists such as Buddy Guy and David Crosby, and how she got into into photography in the first place.

Below are some highlights from the interview:

On David Crosby:

“I photographed him a bunch. I photographed him with Crosby, Stills and Nash at Red Rocks, when I first became house photographer at Red Rocks back in the late ‘90s. We have to do this backstage photo there where you’re getting a piece of them getting the rock, and he was back there, like, ‘Is this the house photographer? She won’t do.’ I was freaking out. I was, like, ‘What’s wrong with this guy?’ and he said, ‘She’s much too beautiful. She’s gonna distract me.’”

On shooting rock stars:

“I always like when there’s a movement, up or down, because it’s something different. You’re just feeling the song. Sometimes they’ll repeat that kind of motion and you’re, like, ‘OK, when he gets to this part again, he’s gonna do something interesting.’”

On shooting Dolly Parton at Red Rocks:

“She was very excited that night. That was right before she started singing ‘Jolene.’ That’s one thing: When it’s a song I love, I have to make sure I’m not moving around, especially because that was from the soundboard and I was hand-holding a 300. She’s amazing – especially at that age. It sounded just like the record.”
