Dalila Kriheli, rockstarpix.com is based in New York, USA and began taking photographs at rock concerts more than 20 years ago, when she realised she could do it professionally. The following is what Dalila has to say about her work:
‘Of course it started out innocently enough by taking a disposable camera to a show, then getting a “real” camera – and just shooting all night long. This was more than a hobby for me and I realized that this was my calling. I always wanted to be in the Music Business one way or the other. As people would see my picture and comment on them (almost all positive feedback) I would hear time and time again that “You should do this for a living.” I’m still going strong and loving it. I have made some wonderful contacts in this industry and even more wonderful friends – It’s my absolute true love to shoot my friends live!
That is really all in a nutshell – There are reasons why I do what I do, and what led me to this, and if and when you meet me, you will understand. As I’m charging up the batteries, and clearing up space on my CompactFlash cards, I leave you with this statement: LIVE YOUR LIFE WITH PASSION! I know I am.
Throughout my years in the entertainment industry, I have been most fortunate to meet the most passionate musicians, tour managers, models, rockers…. I am living a dream – Everybody that has seen me smile – Thank you for bringing it to me. I am truly humbled by all the positive energy that surrounds me.‘
Dalila is a huge fan and friend of Canadian metal band ANVIL and has travelled with them on tour, taking many fantastic shots of them on stage. Her vast collection of photos can be viewed on the official website.
