Class Intro to Getting Started in Music Photography

My name is Todd Owyoung and I'm a music photographer and a Nikon Ambassador. I'm so thrilled to be here with CreativeLive and Red Bull Photography to bring you this course on music photography. We're going to cover everything, from how to get started shooting local bands, getting your first photo pass, the access, hooking up with publications, and getting paid. We're gonna cover all the technical details from dealing with red lighting, your camera settings, the lenses you'll wanna use, all the gear for how to make really compelling music photography. When I photographed my first show, I was simply a fan with a camera and I remember the excitement of working with the band, working with the stage lighting, having limited access and limited time in which to capture images of live music. I remember starting out in venues just like this and working my way up to sold-out stadiums. You're going to see me shooting on location, dealing with all the common challenges that a music photographer wi...

ll face in the field. In addition, we're gonna be working with musicians and creating artist portraits, so if you're shooting for an editorial publication, creating these portraits that could be used in print, online, and even as album artwork. By the end of this class you're gonna have all the tools you need to take your camera to a show and start on your journey of music photography.

I highly reccomend this class for any one who would like to get started or dip their toes in the concert photography scene. This class has many useful tips and trick for any level of photographer, not just beginners. I have been in the music scene for over 10 years and I was able to gather so much information in every chapter. Watching this video boosted up my confidence as a photographer because it validated that I am already succeeding in my concert career. Thank you for this amazing stream. It sparked my creative soul once again.

Wow, this was awesome! I have been a concert photographer for almost 3 years now and I still learned some great tips! I loved that he covered different ideas for promo shots which is one of my weaknesses. Any beginner should definitely check out this course! It is straight and to the point with all of the most important steps.

I have been taking Creative Live classes since 2010 and this is at the top with the best classes t I have taken. This may have been the first time Todd taught a class, but you would never be able to tell. He doesn't just brag about the high profile clients he has shot, he also makes sure to relate to the photographer just starting out. I really enjoyed the two live shows as well as the additional portrait shoots. His concepts on location scouting, playing with distortion, multiple poses in one spot, speedlights, etc. can be applied to all kinds of photography, not just music photography. Highly recommend!
