This week’s show is all about live music photography. It’s something that I’m really passionate about and so I’m really excited the two guests we have on. We will be discussing all you need to know from starting out, making the right connections and having the right attitude, all the way through to getting those all important gigs themselves.
Firstly, joining me this week is pro live music photographer Steve Gerrard, who in the past has photographed the likes of U2, Jay-Z, Kings of Leon & Elton John to name but a few, for publications like Kerrang!, NME & Rocksound magazine. Steve is based in Birmingham, UK and is also the founder of Birmingham Live which was launched to help upcoming music photographers and writers gain exposure. Steve is also a prolific Wedding & Portrait photographer.
Then we have emerging music photographer Jenn O’Neill from Bury St Edmunds, UK. Jenn has already been making waves with her photography, seeing her photograph the likes of Grace Jones, The Editors & Florence and the Machine. Jenn has also already had work published in The Sun Newspaper & BBC Online.
As mentioned on the show, Steve runs some fantastic workshops from his studio in Birmingham on both music photography and wedding photography, so if you’d like to take your skills to the next level – check them out!
