You see them at shows; wonder who they are and what they do. You post their work, not knowing it was theirs, but you share it anyways.
Why? Because it gives you an intimate feeling, makes you feel closer to the people in it, inspires you, or… you just think it is a really cool photo. Their job is to capture the moment while you enjoy the show.
Put the camera phone down and keep an eye out for this group of upcoming music photographers.
