Music photojournalist, news photojournalist...and cardiologist on top of that. Listen to a tiny bit of an extraordinary life.
Hi there welcome back to World Cup Coffee and Tea at Northwest 18th and Glisan for another Oregon Music News Coffeeshop Conversation.
With me today is photojournalist John Rudoff. You have seen his work in Oregon Music News pretty much since we started in 2009. He’s not only a music photojournalist, having come back recently from covering the Syrian refugee tragedy on the Isle of Lesbos.
You have seen his photos of Storm Large. Everyone has. He has probably taken more shots of Storm than anyone else on earth. You’ve also probably seen him shooting photos at a concert you have attended.
He did all this while maintaining a parallel career as a cardiologist.
It’s fun to let you meet our OMN family once in a while.
Next week, you’ll meet Monica Nelson, who was in the punk band The Obituaries in the mid 80s before she moved to New York. She returned to Portland a few years ago and is as spectacular now as she was then.
Right now, allow me to introduce you to John Rudoff.
