Lena Ringstad’s Artful Photographs Shine a Loving Light on Historical Session Musicians


Marinating in her passions for photography and music, Sweden-born Lena Ringstad has created a cottage industry out of capturing men and women at work – specifically behind the scenes session musicians that are the backbone of mega hit records and world tours of the stars.

As one of very few women covering this exclusive niche, Lena provides a unique and intimate bird’s eye view of Los Angeles/Hollywood-based musicians she strongly believes are quiet-kept history-makers deserving of broader attention and acclaim.

She revels in the intimate captures of artists in their largely unseen moments of creative spark…be it recording sessions, band rehearsals, soundchecks, concert stages and the camaraderie exhibited at inner circle events.
