Since we began the series on March 1st, 2008 we’ve understood the importance of documenting our process. Our regular photographer Joe Mansfield has done a fantastic job photographing the bands, locations and technical setup of each shoot on our official Penny Jam Flickr Account.

As of this posting we’ve completed 26 episodes with a combined total of nearly 40,000 views.
