Shreveport Photographer Jack Barham Died

He may not be a household name but Shreveport photographer Jack Barham documented some of Elvis' most important moments as he headed for stardom.
Jack Barham, chief photographer for the Shreveport Journal died Friday aged 92.
Often, Barham became personal friends with celebrities after photographing them, and those friendships lasted throughout their lives.
When a young singer named Elvis Presley made several appearances on KWKH’s popular radio show, The Louisiana Hayride, Barham was there to photograph him.

The two became friends, and Jack often would tell stories of the young Elvis to young reporters as he developed photos in his lab at the back of the Shreveport Journal newsroom.
