5 Amazing Concert Photographers

Jacinta's Blurb Book
A Scrap of Noise, a photobook by Jacinta Mathews

This is a post of a different sort.

I get so much help and inspiration from several concert photographers, that I would like to give them a little recognition (and some linkage). The individuals mentioned all know their stuff, and put a ton of heart and soul into their work, and it shows. Concert photography is a hard business, but their pictures look effortless. Those I point out here should most definitely be on your radar; add them on friends on Flickr or RSS their blog feeds, you won’t be sorry.

Below are some of my favorite photos, one from each photographer, along with links to their blogs/Flickr (and I hope they don’t sue me for taking pictures off their Flickr ;))

Honorable Mentions
(or, other really awesome photographers that you need to check out…in no particular order)

Do you have any concert photographers that you adore? Link them in the comments!

(PS. I know I forgot people, and I’m going to feel really bad when I think of them)

  1. Hi Tasha, I’m flattered six ways come Sunday. Thank you. Of course, I’m pleased that you appreciate my work, but moreover, I’m glad that we’ve been able to exchange ideas and advice that have been beneficial to the both of us.

    For the record, I think you should edit this post to include your flickr link and your awesome work. Hell, give me the login and pass and I’ll do it. You can tell everyone that I hit you on the head with my 70-200mm f/2.8 VR.



  2. Hey Chris – You are definitely inspiring, so you most surely deserve a mention here. I really appreciate how open you are to people “picking your brain.”

    And nope, no self-promotion of me in this post. The alibi of knocking me over the head is a weak one, I’m afraid – I’m a small girl, so I’ve learned to wield my 70-200mm as a weapon too. I’m sure I could fend you off πŸ˜‰

  3. Hey Tasha,

    Thanks a million for including me in the ‘honourable mentions’. I’m very often amazed and forever grateful for the feedback I get from much more seasoned and estblished photographers than myself. So thanks very much for that πŸ™‚

    And if I had to make a list of my favorite photographers you would surely be in it. I always look forward to more photos from you… The colours, the great angles, the sheer love of music, the raw energy you manage to capture… All these things and more are all incredably inspiring πŸ™‚

    So thanks again and all the best to you,


  4. OMG! πŸ˜€ This is certainly a nice thing to wake up to in the morning! The photo of my book made me giggle like a schoolgirl.

    Rest assured that if I was to do my own of one of these lists, there’d be no doubt that you’d be on it.

  5. Yay! Glad I made you giggle, Jacinta πŸ™‚

    I realized the other day that I never told you I got the book and how much I liked it…. so, take this as me telling you that I adore it! I’m going to send you some of my Moo cards too, because I just got them a week or so ago, and I LOOOOOVE them πŸ™‚

  6. What Jacinta and Chris said!!!! Being recognized by anyone is quite an honor, being recognized by someone who’s work I’m a huge fan of and hope to learn even just a little bit from from is pretty much icing on the cake. Thanks Tasha! Sincerely!

  7. Oh, Mary, you’re so funny πŸ™‚

    And that picture of Dave Grohl is AWESOME. That originally wasn’t the picture I was looking for, but I saw it and fell in love.

  8. Oh wow, a honorable mention, thanks Tasha that means alot coming from someone who I admire and respect as a concert photographer.
    Every now and then I look through your flickr page and just go, woah! Amazing.
