Jeffrey Mayer (Photographer)

Jeffrey MayerJeffrey Mayer has had a 50+ year career documenting pop culture and shaping how we saw our rock and roll icons! After seeing The Beatles at Shea Stadium in 1965, Jeffrey got “the bug” and mastered the art of photography and story telling through his images. Mayer’s unique photo archive has grown to become among the most comprehensive in the music industry and here-to-date known only to music industry insiders. The photos in the collection have never been printed, and most have not been seen since they graced the pages of rock and roll’s fabled magazine era decades ago.

Jeffrey's images have appeared in ALL major music magazines and on albums including Led Zeppelin’s “How The west was Won”, Pat Benatar “Get Nervous” album cover, Ten Years After “Live’ album cover to name a few….
