Live Music Photography
My name is Jean-Luc Benazet, I am a photographer in Cambridge, UK. I created this page to be able to have all of the gigs I photographed between 2006 & 2013 in one place and away from my main professional blog. There is a gallery below gathering my favourite images, and the blog holds about 84 gigs that I covered over the years. I have been taking pictures at concerts since March 2001 but only started a blog in 2006.
Live music photography can be quite challenging. In an environment where the motto “3 songs no flash” rules, you have very little chance for mistakes let alone failure. Low light, spotlights, erratic movements of the performers, every single parameter can make or break a picture. However, after all these years, I still get the same buzz from it! All images were shot using Nikon equipment: Mainly Nikon D2x & D3.
Also, here is a non exhaustive list of the gigs I attended as a fan and/or as a photographer!
