From the Vault

And now for something completely different! Before becoming an award-winning landscape photographer, Todd Caudle began his photo career in a very different venue. From 1979 to 1994 he chased the Colorado concert scene, first by camping out at ticket outlets to secure the best seats and sneaking his camera and lens into the arenas, and later photographing freelance for a variety of local, national and international publications. In the process, he amassed a one-of-a-kind collection of images — most of which have never been seen — a virtual who’s who of big-name entertainers, from Michael Jackson to Metallica, and every genre in-between. He photographed local assignments for Rolling Stone magazine, spent two years as the house photographer for Denver’s historic Paramount Theater, and supplied all the photographs for the Moody Blues’ legendary "A Night at Red Rocks" CD and video release. He spent a decade as a freelance photographer and writer/columnist for the Colorado Springs Gazette, and he is well represented in G Brown's 2016 pictorial celebration of Red Rocks Amphitheater, "Red Rocks – The Concert Years." His archives contain roughly 700 performances, and he has slowly begun to share these images with the world.
