I have been interested interested in photography since my childhood but it was in 2008 when photography became a hobby.
I am a complete autodidact and always interested in improving my skills. Concert photography is my great passion but I do not limit myself to this. The world is to interesting for such a limitation.
Why concert photography?
First of all I do love music and the atmosphere of a good concert. Apart from that, concert photography is a challenge I love to bear: It is usually only three songs you are allowed to shoot out of the pit. And these 10-15 minutes are very special like no other:
It is narrow and "crowded", always very loud, behind you there are the screaming fans, in front of you there is the artist, doing poses and gestures you have to capture within a second. No second chance. The light is extrem: too much or too little, frontal or cloloured... And you are in the middle of it all, trying to catch the momentum, the atmosphere of the particular event. You are trying to transfer sound and style of the artist into the image. It is all about getting this one particular picture which tells the complete story.
It is adrenalin pure.
