Getting to know the work of dozens of music photographers working locally over the past couple months has been a joy. After receiving nominations for more than 100 shooters for the best music photographer in the Twin Cities, we narrowed it down to 20 finalists. We profiled them and got a lot of professional advice, and then put it to the people for a vote.

Over 3,000 votes were cast, and now we're ready to reveal a winner.

Congratulations to Steven Cohen & Erik Hess for being finalists!


Most of those pictures he posts are ones that he took off of Google. Besides, I've heard rumors that he has ties to the Taliban


@Indeed @HungSoLow You can't prove that i'm wrong. You're just throwing around hurtful words like 'idiot'. No wonder civil rights are so far behind in this country
