A camera and a show; that’s all you need. Tasked with taking pictures of rock concerts on behalf of a local radio station, Steven Sanchez turned his love of music into a passion for photography, attending performances in every type of venuefrom clubs and outdoors festivals to acoustic showcases and arena spectacles. His photography includes a huge array of artists from different genres (rock, rap, folk, indie) ranging from upcoming bands, to Grammy winning musicians, to true legends. And he accomplished it all in a city that isn’t particularly known for its music scene or as a top choice for touring artists. In this book, he takes you behind the scenes at these concerts and shows how you can achieve similar results, capturing the emotion, energy, and artistry of live music wherever you live.
