Cameras Used:

  • Nikon D700
  • Nikon D7000

Lenses Used:

This was a pretty crazy show, and I used just about about everything in my bags at one point or another, including the three f/1.4 prime lenses and three f/2.8 zooms.

Full shooting notes coming up soon as well as the full set. Big shout out to my friend and fellow music photographer Torry Pendergrass for hooking this show up.

My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

Nikon Z 7:
I use two Nikon Z 7 for my live music photography. A true do-it-all mirrorless camera with amazing AF, great speed and fantastic resolution.


Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8S:
The 24-70mm is my go-to lens. The range is ideal for stage front photography and the image quality is superb.


Nikon 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 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.
