Today it’s time for a guestblog by Sven Michiels about concert photography, you should really check out his site at svenmichiels.be.
Sven visited my workshops a few times and it was always fun to hang out with him so when I was looking for new guestbloggers I immediately thought of Sven, and when you see his work you will also know why.
To take off on this guest blog, I’d like to give you some background information about myself. I’m a Belgian photographer based just in a small village next to Antwerp. Around 5 years ago, I started photographing concerts after a period of mainly car racing photography. Some of my clients on the racetrack introduced me to a well-known concert band: Praga Khan. From the first concert, I really loved concert photography and my clients had the same feeling. Since my first picture on a concert (or even on the racetrack), I knew that several things had to be kept in mind, but there were 2 main points, namely always capture the action & keep looking for unique moments!
