Remember when Rocks Off told you we were holding a contest to determine Houston's best music photographer? It only seems like it was before photography itself was invented. (Here's the link, in case you think we're making it up.) Turns out quite a few of you think you fit that description -- more than 30, when all was said and done. No wonder it took so long.

So the real credit goes to the three kind souls who were willing to sort through almost three dozen portfolios to narrow down the field to ten: Ky Meyer of Channel 39's Newsfix; The Convoy Group's Mark C. Austin, himself a damn fine music lensman in his own right; and UH associate professor of photojournalism Richard Carson, formerly of the Houston Chronicle photo desk.

Now, at long last, it's our distinct pleasure to announce the ten finalists in our contest to determine Houston's best music photographer. Congratulations to them all, but we're not ready to declare a winner just yet. First we're going to introduce you to all ten in the next couple of weeks, and then we'll open up the voting to our readers. For now, feast your eyes on what a tough decision you'll have to make.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
