There's no “school of rock photography” and there are certainly no secrets in this business. I'm a music photographer who has lived and breathed concert photography since I photographed my first concert in 2006. As proud as I am of the images I have made, I'm also very grateful to have the opportunity to share everything that I've learned as a professional music photographer.
I started this site ishootshows.com in 2007 and have written over a thousand posts about music photography, from gear reviews to tutorials and how-to articles on how to photograph live music. Here's a collection of some of the articles I feel would be most helpful to anyone looking to get on the path to becoming a rock photographer.
