We have hundreds of thousands of images but only a fraction are currently in the database. This is because we are in the process of watermarking them and we are constantly acquiring new material. So in addition to searching here, please contact us to see what else we have. To search you can just simply type the artist or group you are looking for. You can also add the year or venue they played at. For example, you can search “David Bowie 1978” or “David Bowie Madison Square Garden 1978.” With the advanced search feature you can give a date range to the artist you are looking for. You can also just type a year in and see every photo we have from that year.
Once your search results show up, if you put your cursor over the image it will enlarge and if you simply move it off the photo it will return to its normal size. To select the photos you wish to download, click on "ADD TO CART." If you want to download all of the photos in your search click on "ADD ALL PHOTOS FROM PAGE 1." If your search results contain more than 100 photos you will need to click that same button for each page. Once you've selected the images you want to download, click on "CART" at the top of the page. To receive your images please click on “REQUEST PHOTOS” and completely fill out the form and the request will be sent to us for approval.
If you're a fan who wants to simply have a digital copy or someone doing a project for school please know that we will NOT approve that request. However, in some cases (depending on the photographer and whether the negative exists) we will allow you to purchase a fine art print, so if that's what you're looking for please let us know.
Please remember our moving image archive houses over 30,000 hours of music footage spanning 90 years so if you’re working on a project that requires music footage as well as still images please visit reelinintheyears.com
