‘My portraits are more about me then they are about the people I photograph’….Richard Avedon
Recently I have been photographing a fair amount of shows in rather small venues. Arriving in time for sound check has become my pattern as many of the images I like are made before the audience arrives. You are able to freely move about the venue without blocking anyone’s view and the artists are more prone to give me a bit more of what I am after in a music image – direct eye contact!
Below is a gallery of some recent images – environmental portraits made at sound check or after the show.
