Ross Halfin got into music photography almost by accident, sneaking his cameras into concerts by the likes of The Who, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Man and Free. Because Sounds, Melody Maker and the NME were interested in the punk scene Ross also shot The Clash, The Sex Pistols, The Jam, Adam Ant, The Adverts, The Specials and Blondie, but he preferred bands with bigger, more eye-catching stage shows and rock stars who looked and behaved as such, not self-pitying, apologetic little weasels. He would spend the following decade traveling the world with such heavyweights as Iron Maiden, Metallica, Def Leppard, Guns N’ Roses, Kiss and Mötley Crüe in his viewfinder, and also worked as an official tour photographer for Paul McCartney, George Harrison and The Who amongst numerous others.
