I think with music, Doctor, you're always chasing that iconic shot, whatever bandit is and that band at its most elevated. So I think there's just, you know, is that this is kind of like that desire to doom or, um so, uh, all right, Elise Hu's.
Concert photography can be one of the hardest fields in photography. As a photographer you have no control over the lighting, environment, or direction of your subject. Learning how to lower the variables so you can capture an amazing moment of a performer or band will drastically improve your chances at growing an amazing portfolio. Todd and Chris Owyoung have photographed some of the biggest names in the music industry. In this class they’ll cover:
How to build your portfolio and get photo passes to concerts
What gear to bring to a performance
Step by step walk through of a live performance and how to deal with the variables within
In this class the sibling photographic duo will share their expertise of capturing commercial precision and the exhilaration of being in the front row.
When Chris and Todd started taking their cameras to concerts in 2006, neither of them dreamed that the combination of two separate passions – music and photography – would lead them to projects with some of the biggest names in the industry
Where do I start? I had photographed a couple of small concerts in the past of a friends band, but normally have stayed within Wildlife and Sports photography. I had an interest in doing something bigger. So I watched this course, and was amazed with their instruction. A lot of great information that some may not think of, or use in practice. I have now (since watching their course) am not only a contributing photographer for a local paper, but have shot my first big concert with Styx. I am now going to be shooting the Reba concert tonight. Chris, Todd, thanks so much for clear and concise direction of how to approach, and the steps needed to get these opportunities. Can not thank you enough!
Excellent class! Holy moly, check out their websites! Lots of good advice, especially for the novice.
