From the E.R. to Hollywood: Former Surgeon Now Professional Celebrity Photographer & Noted Industry Publicist Documents Icons of Rock and Roll History

Now retired from medicine to pursue his passions of movie making and photography, Mark Valinsky, a nationally- and internationally-known surgeon has been reincarnated -- applying his exacting surgical skills, he has now unleashed his artistic creativity and passion into the world of professional photography. Dr. Valinsky has vividly captured the life force exuded by these legendary performers, such as The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles and more, and his skills indicate the photographer might well become a legend himself.
