The Deke Dickerson
Photo Archive

The Deke Dickerson Photo Archive is a new and exciting resource for scholars of music history. It features vintage and modern photos of musicians, guitars, and other music-related personalities and objects. You will only find these rare, unique images here. From color photos of country musicians heretofore only seen in black and white to images of the rarest guitars on the planet to “found” photos saved from the trash bins of time, this archive is a valuable resource that we are proud to make available to the public.

These images are fully copyrighted and available for licensing for use in media, print, advertising, etc. Rates available upon request, determined on an individual basis. These images may not be reproduced without permission, and any violation of copyright will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Upon licensing, a high-resolution image (JPG, TIF, or PDF) will be posted to the FTP site of your choice or sent via CDR.
