Anonymous inquired How long have you been photographing gigs for? You are awesome at it

I started officially at the beginning of 2012!
the past two year before that I had only photographed my friends bands, and just a few things for fun.

but yeah, 2012 was the game changer, and boy am I glad I fell into it.

It keeps me going.

Thanks for the message and the kind words, I really really appreciate it.

Anonymous inquired I found you on instagram lovely ! :) one of my friends liked your pictures and I went on your page and was captivated. Your photos are so rad. I'm super excited to start. I just need to finish my current course then I'm planning on emailing to see if I can get some experience from them. Thankyou so much though for everything. X you rule :)

instagram rules!
I should probably use mine for more for my photos, but I find that people do enjoy a few personal posts here and there to break it up?

this is really cool though, I’m really flattered you took the time to message me!

p.s. you should message me your instagram username so I can have a lurk back if I haven’t already!

Anonymous inquired That is so rad! I'm really keen to start. I already attend heaps of concerts and thought that photographing artists would be interesting! Do you still think I could volunteer at amn? Sorry for the anon, I don't have tumblr :(

I was exactly the same as you! being 5’2 makes going to a show a bit tricky though, if I wasn’t at the barrier, I’d barely see anything…

And because I spent so much time at the barrier, I got to notice those photographers in the pit and thought “wow I’d much rather be doing that!”

Shoot Dave at AMN an email! dave@myamn.com.au they’re always expanding their reviewers and photographers!

How did you come across my tumblr if you don’t have one yourself may I ask? I love hearing how people stumble across my work!

Anonymous inquired Hi, sorry to bother you but I want to get into music photography but not sure who to turn to . I would like to volunteer . Where did you start? I have done previous photography studies, does that help? :) you are such a rad photographer I love looking at your stuff it's very intriguing ! Thanks man any info would be awesome :))

hey there, you’re not a bother at all!
I still volunteer as a music photographer, I started by becoming a contributor for AMN, which had literally just started.

I worked really hard, shot A LOT of local shows in bad lighting, and worked my way up. I learned so much in such a short space of time, and I grew to really love and respect it. I had done VCE Photography at school, but I didn’t find the real love for photography until I stumbled into music photography. It’s all kind of gone from there!

Thank you kindly, that’s a huge compliment, it means a lot you took the time to say so.

I wish you all the best! Let me know how it goes for you.
