Chuck Dayton has been taking pictures of loon families on his little lake near Ely for many of the 63 years he's been spending summers there.

Allen Beaulieu was happy when Prince asked him to shoot some cover photos for an upcoming album.  (Frankly, he wasn't a fan of the previous cover photos.)

But when Prince asked him to abandon his studio and go on the road with him, photographing the musician live in concert and behind the scenes, Beaulieu stepped into a completely new life.
