About This Class

True Life: I have a live music addiction.


The lights. The sound. The energy of a crowd. The raw human expression. Being immersed by all of it makes me come alive. I'm truly "at home" when I'm witnessing the power of live performance. Whether it's an independent act in an intimate venue, running around a major music festival or listening to some of the best DJ's/Producers at a dance club, girlfriend is in her element. 

After getting the opportunity to shoot my first show with a DSLR, I devoted all of my extra time and energy figuring out ways to do this all the time. In just under a year, I've shot 5 major festivals and countless concerts. My work has been featured in several online publications, both local and national. I've been hired by some of my favorite venues and one of the biggest dance music festival promoters in the world. Local and international artists have tapped me to shoot for them. In all realness, my dreams of "becoming a concert photographer" have been realized beyond my wildest imagination. And I want to help YOU do the same. 

This class offers a step by step guide on many aspects of breaking into music photography including: how to gain access, a handy music photography style guide, things to keep in mind when you’re shooting, organizing your efforts & time to ensure future opportunities, editing stand-out images, recommended gear, recommended camera settings, marketing yourself, and more!
