Concert Portfolio: Updated

Stone Temple Pilots

Just a quick note to say I've updated my portfolio. Unlike previous incarnations of my portfolio, for this round I decided to try something completely new.

First, I retired all of the images in my previous portfolio. While my old book included some of my very favorite concert images, I wanted a clean break so that I could clearly define the display of new work without past influence.

Next, I decided to limit myself to images from the last few months, drawing entirely from my most recent events to show the freshest images.

So, what made the cut? You can see the resulting 18 images here.

As a concise statement about yourself as a photographer, one's portfolio is an essential part of communicating your vision and your capabilities. If you're interested in refreshing your portfolio, or looking to create one for the first time, check out my 8 Tips for a Great Photography Portfolio.

My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

Nikon D850:
I use two Nikon D850 for my live music photography. A true do-it-all DSLR with amazing AF, fast response, and no shortage of resolution.
nikon-24-70mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 24-70mm f/2.8:
For most gigs, the 24-70mm is my go-to lens. Exceptional image quality at wide apertures and super-functional range.
Nikon-70-200-squareNikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR:
A perfect pair to the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, I can basically shoot any job with the midrange and this lens. Superb image quality.
nikon-14-24mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 14-24mm f/2.8:
Ultra-wide perspective, ridiculously sharp even wide open at f/2.8. I love using this lens up-close and personal, where it excels.
