Music photography in this day and age is so important to exposing you/your band online through social media or websites. I like to take photographs that represent you as an artist/band considering the music you are making or the clientele you are trying to attract. As a musician myself, I understand the importance of getting the right images to present online and I strongly believe in avoiding the cliché ‘stand in front of a brick wall’ shot - I will not and don’t shoot this. I would first meet you, get to know you/your band and listen to the music you are making before deciding locations, style and creative context. I also expand my music photograph not just to artist/band portraits but also capturing a live performance.
