Photography >> Music Photography

My favourite view of a live band is from the photography pit. Working in the South African music industry gave me all areas access to the biggest concerts and festivals in the country. Shooting artists on large, beautifully lit stages is always a pleasure, but I gladly take on the creative challenge of working in smaller venues. The posts below document all the shows I’ve managed to photograph over the years. I am generous with my images provided I am credited for them, please contact me if you want to use any of them on your band’s websites etc.
