As a result of social distancing, many photographers have lost their main income source and face an uncertain future whilst on lockdown.
Many of us are suffering financially.
This crisis has hit hard – especially for those who do their work amidst sweaty crowds of music fans – capturing those iconic images of the artists we love.
In response, a collective have created a website for some of the most talented music photographers in the country to showcase their work and generate income through the direct sale of prints. Most of these images have never been made available before and we reckon they would look great hanging on your walls!!
Click on the link below to check out these amazing images – any purchase will make a huge difference and you might just find the perfect gift for yourself or that music lover in your life.
We had a quick chat with each of the photographers involved in the project –
Here’s part three of the series…
Kevin Bull is Based on the Central Coast, and publisher of Reverb Online. Has been shooting live music for 15 years, but did have a crack at it back in the mid ‘80s. Primarily shooting on the Coast, Newcastle and the Hunter Valley, but for the right gig, I’ll travel to Sydney.
