The Challenge rules are as follows: - Walk down the street and with planned subject matter, make the best possible photos in only 36 frames. - Shoot my old camera (Nikon D5000 w/18-55mm kit lens) - Shoot and edit in Jpeg only
This episode of the music photo podcast means a lot to me. Tim was one of the earliest music photographers that I followed online. Before I even started photography I would look at his stuff and wish that I could make pictures like he did.
A couple of months ago, my buddy Jared hit me on Facebook with a couple of questions in prep for his upcoming overseas trip. I told him save it and we could jump on Skype to record another episode for anyone else that might find it useful or interesting.
In this episode I chat with Warwick Hughes (our first repeat guest) about his warped tour stories. We cover things such as staying sane on a long gruelling tour, standing out as a videographer, what to do when things go wrong and much much more.
Time and again, I fall into that terrible cycle of gear lust. Always looking to something newer and better. It's a first world affliction that is satisfied for a week at a time when we get the new piece for the collection, before our sights are changed to the next.
Last year, I spent two months in the US with my friends Belle Haven. It was the best and hardest thing I've ever done. I'm finally now going to attempt to tell the story through pictures over the next couple of blog posts.
Nathan and I started doing music photography at about the same time in the same scene. We've taken completely different paths though. From his HXC moshxcore br00tal beginnings, he branched off into the nightclub scene and naturally into EDM music. It was a good move for him to say the least.
Caitlin shoots and edits different to most other photographers I know. Where in most other 2015 portfolios you might see faded, grainy and washed out tones KTB uses contrast and colour in her edits and her Alien Bees strobes to give you the kind of punch that Ali would be proud of.
Markus surprised me by how humble and softly spoken he was in this episode. I guess I expected a big explosive personality by seeing his big photographs. There are a few ways he breaks the mold of what most of my music photography are doing...
