Biographical Note

Niles J. Fuller is a photographer specializing in the Austin, Texas, music scene. Fuller is best known for his large-format studio portraiture of musicians. He worked as a still photographer for the 2004 film The Devil and Daniel Johnston. Fuller was also the publisher of Austin Music Mag. After living and working in Niagara Falls, New York, for a period of time, Fuller is now residing again in Austin, Texas.

Scope and Contents

Collection consists of 11x14 photographic prints and TIFF files of the Austin music industry and includes musicians, artists, club owners, concert promoters, music journalists, disc jockeys, music video producers, songwriters and record company executives. The photographs were taken in the studio and at other locations in the Austin area. Although Fuller initiated the project, he later obtained support of the Shiner of Austin beer distributorship and the Spoetzl Brewery in Shiner. Other artistic and entertainment agencies also contributed to the production of the print portion of the collection. The photographs were exhibited at various Austin restaurants and clubs as "The Shiner Showcase of Austin Music" prior to coming to the Center for American History. The TIFF files have come in more recently as digital technology became available and include both scans of existing prints and new material.


Arrangement of the Papers

The photographic print portion of this collection is arranged alphabetically by name of the subject. CDs are indicated by disk number and a list of contents of each CD.
