NEAL PRESTON BIO:

Preston is best known in rock circles as Led Zeppelin’s U.S. tour photographer in the mid-1970s, however, his portfolio of works encompasses many of the greatest names in music, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Heart, Duran Duran, Queen, Fleetwood Mac, The Allman Brothers, David Bowie and many more.

An accomplished photojournalist, Preston has shot stories and covers – not only on musicians- for a multitude of world-class magazines including Newsweek, Time, and Rolling Stone. In 1980 he began a 30-year-long relationship with People Magazine and to this day remains the most-assigned photographer in the history of the magazine, with almost 700 shoot days to his credit.

In June of 2010, Preston cemented a relationship with the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, becoming the first photographer to mount a one-man exhibition of his work on the premises. Preston’s work has been also displayed at such elite institutions as the Smithsonian in Washington D.C., the National Gallery in London, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. His iconic photograph of Freddie Mercury is part of the permanent photo exhibit at the new Wembley Stadium in London. His work is included in the permanent collection of the new Yankee Stadium in New York, and close to 100 of Preston’s photographs adorn the walls of the newly renovated Forum in Inglewood, California.
