As a New York Celebrity photographer, Donn Thompson creates iconic portraits of admired artists. Whether it is behind the scenes or in a studio, Donn photographs both actors and musicians alike.


He has photographed the greats from all genres, including Reggae Singers, Jazz Musicians, R&B performers, and Hip Hop legends.

While he was in art school, Donn remembers the Uprising Tour stopped by Pittsburgh to promote the album of the same name. He had the privilege of photographing Bob Marley with his band, The Wailers, at a venue known as Stanley Theatre. This event on September 23, 1980, turned out to be the last scheduled public concert performed by the Reggae idol. Donn, full of nostalgia, recollects as if it was just yesterday when Bob Marley took the stage to sing his "Redemption Song." Triumphant!
