I recently got the opportunity to direct a commercial! Yay!!! Now the bad news: I've been working a mind-numbing retail job for the last eight months, and have had few opportunities to do anything creative (outside of writing a screenplay). Help me re-enliven my inner creative spark. [more inside]

I'm going to be in the Bay Area in early May and whilst I'm there I'm going to be shooting presskit photos of some local musicians.

Tips on taking good band photos? Best band photos ever? [more inside]
At some point in my life I would like to graduate from displaying posters on my wall to having fine art prints from the photographers themselves. I am thinking I would like a candid photograph of Johnny Cash and Joe Strummer (not in the same picture!). I assume there is a gallery to represent these photographers, but how do I start the process of finding them?
I'm looking for inspiration. The subject is band/musical artist photographs... not live images, but portraits and art shots that accompany articles and are used for band promotion. Can anyone recommend some photographers, websites or individual images for me to check out? (I already know about Annie Leibovitz, Anton Corbijn, Steve Gullick and Chris Buck, but feel free to point out particular shots by these artists that you admire anyhow.)
