Renowned rock musician photographer Barry Feinstein died Thursday at the age of 80, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Having photographed more than 500 album covers for musicians like Bob Dylan, George Harrison, and Janis Joplin, Feinstein is considered one of the premier music scene chroniclers of the 1960s and '70s, the Los Angeles Times reported.

According to CBS News , some of Feinstein's most notable works include George Harrison's "All Thing Must Pass" solo album cover and Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A-Changin'" album cover.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Feinstein had photos published in a variety of magazines including Life, Look Esquire, Time, and Newsweek.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Feinstein's success was a result of his interesting compositions and the likable personality traits he possessed that gave him the ability to gain access to the artists he was photographing.

Feinstein is survived by his wife, Judith Jamison, two children, three stepchildren, Erica Marshall and Jasper and Jake Jamison; and three grandchildren, the Los Angeles Times reported.
