In 1978, she started Kaleyediscope Photography with two other women photographers to market their work. They felt that forming a company would help them overcome the tendency to regard women rock photographers as groupies.

Interviewed by Dr. Lauren Onkey

Scott Newton has been the house photographer for Austin City Limits for 31 of the show's 36 years, capturing some of the world's finest musicians on film, (and later with digital photography), for posterity.

His work has been published on numerous record/cd album covers, and in many magazines and books, including four books illustrated entirely by his work: three about Austin City Limits, the two most recent being Austin City Limits-25 years of American Music and Austin City Limits--35 Years in Photographs.  His work entirely illustrates the republished version of The Improbable Rise of Redneck Rock.  He has also worked extensively as a freelance photographer, shooting not only music, but also politics.
