Learning Series: Concert Photography with Nick Tan

  • October 16, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • Ceili's Irish Pub & Restaurant

Another fantastic instructional event in our Learning Series!

Concert Photography with Nick Tan

We're very fortunate to have Nick Tan, musician and photographer, presenting on the art of concert photography. Nick has created an e-book with all his tips and tricks and he's eager to share his experience and knowledge with the world.

The $10 presenter fee includes a digital copy of Nick's new e-book.

What to Expect

We'll gather in the Dublin Room on the 2nd Floor at Ceili's Pub beginning at 6:30pm for some overdue socializing. The room has full bar, a selection of draft beers, and you can order from their regular pub menu throughout the evening.

The presentation will start at 7:30pm in the same room. Nick will be available during and after the presentation to answer your questions.

Some of us will pack up and leave around 9pm but you are welcome to stay and socialize and leave when you like.

Target Audience

This learning event will appeal to beginners and those who want to know more about the art of photographing stage bands. Nick will expound on the tips and tricks for planning your shots and creative use of existing stage lighting.

Look forward to seeing you there!

      Hi Grace! I did send a reply to your email but my computer's email applicaiton isn't working properly lately so it's possible you didn't get it. Sorry! Yes, yes, in your case, it makes sense to bring your daughter. See you tomorrow! :)

    Hey trish, I don't have a shotgun mic as of yet but I can
    record this on my 7D.

    October 9, 2012

    • Trish

      Thanks Steve. I think we'll be using the in-house mic, so sound may not be a problem. If you want to come early (say 6pm), we will be doing setup and you can do a sound check then to see if it will work.

  • Jack S.

    curious to see how concert shooting has changed over the last 20-25 yrs ....... digital notwithstanding? :)

  • Katherine D.

    Sounds interesting! Never tried concert photography before. What sort of equipment should we be bringing (besides a camera), tripod, hot shoe mounted flash???

    September 29, 2012

    • Dominic M.

      Have fun!

      September 29, 2012

    • Trish

      Hi Katherine, just so there's no confusion, this Meetup is a lecture and we won't be shooting anything. You can bring your equipment if you want but it's not necessary.

    I used to shoot a lot of stage and theater back in the 90's on film. I was shooting almost exclusively black and white Fuji Neopan 1600 or Kodak T-Max 3200 without flash using only 3 prime lenses: 24mm f/2, 50mm f/1.4 and 180mm f/2.8. One time I set up some radio controlled flashes on the sides of the stage - only to have one stolen!

  • Dominic M.

    I have shot 5 concerts this month. Will there be any age restrictions for this meetup?

    September 29, 2012

    • Trish

      Hi Dominic! So sorry, but Ceili's license is liquor priority therefore all guests must be 19. :(

      September 29, 2012

    • Dominic M.

      Don't worry about it :). I am going to a photograph a local band on October 11. Maybe do some environmental portraits before the venue. I will also be going to a concert on the 12th.
