  • Aug 3, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • Ian Murray Photography

In response to many of you who have expressed a wish to learn more about photographing musicians in performance, I have decided to offer an introductory workshop covering the things you really need to know.  

If you have ever wondered how to get started in the world of photographing musicians or just want to know how to get the best shots then this is the workshop you've been waiting . for,

The workshop will cover:

  • Equipment - what you really need and what you don't
  • Settings that are guaranteed to get you the shot
  • Critical Positioning:  places that get you the best  shot
  • Timing: How  to anticipate for the best shot
  • Shooting on rapid fire or single shot?
  • Etiquette - the major don'ts that will get you thrown out
  • The major do's that will get you invited back
  • Giving it all away?   Protecting yourself and your images
  • Post Processing tips - simple tricks that turn regular shots into killer images.
  • How to break into the business - how to find opportunities and get hired.



The workshop will begin at 10am and end at 1pm .  The cost is $40 per person and places are limited to just 6.

    This was beyond an introduction! Covered way more than the technical side. Great insight on how to foster relationships to GET to photograph the musicians and many many details on making the best of your time while you are at the event itself.

    I found this thoroughly beneficial. It covered way more than just the technical aspects, but all the details only someone very familiar with photographing musicians could relate for our complete benefit. Also found the Q&A time above and beyond helpful!

    Do we need to bring anything? Just a notebook or is there practice?

    I would love to have made this one but, I am going away for the weekend. I hope you will have another one in the not too distant future.

    Wow I need this lesson! I am photographing at a club in August and really would appreciate going into it with more knowledge. I had a great time learning HDR with you before. Hopefully my check gets deposited quickly so I can reserve my spot tomorrow.
