It's been a long time since I've updated my deviant but I've been busy in the meantime... so I have excuses ok?!
I've been accepted as a contributor for the music website FasterLouder.com! It's a pretty cool website so you should check it out, especially if you live in Australia and like to keep up with the music scene!
It's not a paying job or even a major position... but it's a useful one! Basically FasterLouder organise to have their contributors (journalists and photographers) cover gigs around major cities and in exchange for free publicity, the contributors get in free! Free concerts! Free experience! Free portfolio stuff! Score!
So I covered my first gig for them last Saturday. A band called Inland Sea as well as two supporting acts, Jackson Mclaren and The Rescue Ships. Not really my kind of music, but it was still pretty chill (I've been using that word a LOT lately). Nice laidback, cheerful sort of music. Slightly jazzy, mainly folky. Nice stuff. You should check them all out if you get the chance cause they really got the crowd buzzing!
I really enjoyed jumping in getting shots of the bands, the performances and the crowd. It just reinforced my desire to turn photography into something more serious...!
Anyway looking to cover more gigs soon, make a name so I can cover some big concerts next year!
If you want to check out the rest of the photos from the gig, I'd appreciate it! Just click this www.fasterlouder.com.au/galler… !
Also been listening to so much electro/synth/dance pop... more people should check out bands like Foster The People, Friendly Fires and Miami Horror!
Hope the world is treating you well all...!
