Band photography entails promo shots, performance shots and candid photographs that show the world who you are. We live in a connected world and it is easier than ever for a band to promote and showcase themselves and their music. Bands need photography not only for online networks, music sites and social networking but CD liners, covers and flyers as well. At Studio 71 we LOVE to shoot band photography. It can be so unscripted, on the fly and honest.
performance shots as band photography
I LOVE taking pictures of performances. There is something magical about stage lighting in a dark environment to really pop a bands presence. Wide angles, uncommon angles and audience shots really bring the viewer into the photo.
backstage candid band photography
Candid photography can really bring a bands personality to an audience that may otherwise never be exposed. It adds a level of intimacy with the band and provide another level of connection.
