Make Connections and Rise Up
- Staying consistent and pushing through is super important when making connections and building a career.
- There’s times when you’ll go to photograph an artist when they just won’t have a great performance, or won’t give you much to work with. You have to see those as a learning experience.
- You can always look up a venue or concert on YouTube and see what the lighting might look like.
- Knowing what’s coming can make you a better music photographer. Be as prepared as you can be.
- Reginald looks up if an artist is left or right handed in order to get the best shots.
- Attention to detail, preparation, and networking are all key for a successful career in music photography.
