“A great photo doesn’t have to have someone famous in it. It just has to evoke some sort of response from the viewer.”
— Kane Hibbard
I’m convinced everyone has seen a photo of a musician or band that has captivated them. Be it the capturing of a moment in time of an elaborate theatrical performance, the emotional transparency of an artist or that split second of incredible engagement with the audience, music photography always elicits a response from the viewer.
My own love for music photography started while playing in bands, going on tour and learning from other mates. No show is ever exactly the same as the last and that’s what makes it exciting and forces you to try new things and think creatively about what and how you’re shooting.
