How to become a concert photographer
Being a concert photographer can be very exciting. Imagine yourself standing 6 feet away in front of your beloved idol and taking portraits of them. Not only do you have the ability to shoot one image but can take hundreds of pictures. As a passionate music lover this seems like a dream and indeed this is a close description how it can feel.
I started my career shooting in small clubs for an internet magazine about 2 years ago. When I had a bunch of good concert pictures I applied for music magazines and record labels. Once the snowball effect started I found myself standing in front of big stages and had the opportunity to shoot artists like Leonard Cohen, Deep Purple, The Prodigy, Rammstein, Foo Fighters, The Black Keys and Jamiroquai to name some of them. If you also would like to become a concert photographer, but you don´t know how to start, this tutorial will be for you.
In the next couple of blog posts I´ll cover the following points:
- How do you start to become a concert photographer?
- What equipment do you need?
- How do you get the shot?
Stay tuned and I hope it will improve your skills in this exciting field of photography.
