Some Of My Favorite Concert Photos Of 2022

concert photos
Björk (one of my favorite concert photos)

I take concert photos, this is what I do when I go to shows. People sometimes tell me I cannot listen to the music and take pictures simultaneously, but I have to disagree. Focusing on what’s happening on stage, makes me closer to the performers and I would say that I do listen very attentively to the music when shooting bands. In any case, I enjoy doing it and would not imagine going to a show and not shooting. It’s in me and it’s a thrilling occupation that adds another layer of excitement. I am particularly happy I could take a few pics of Björk because security was very tough that night.

I don’t have photo passes all the time, since it’s very hard to get passes for big concerts. Even when you manage to get one for a large venue, remember that you only have 3 songs in the pit and you are out (often to the back of the room). I prefer to arrive very early, stand up at the rail with a point & shoot camera, and do what I can. It’s only possible for well-lit shows, but you can forget about it when a punk band is playing in a venue with crapy lighting! It’s way too much movement under dim light for a small camera, and that’s when I really need my DSLR. By the way, these types of cameras are going away, mirrorless cameras are all the rage these days. However, photo equipment is so expensive that I will keep using mine till it’s dead.

I don’t have very costly equipment, just a basic Canon camera, and a few lenses. When I see some photographers arriving with a lens so long that it drags near the ground, or two backpacks and a suitcase filled with flashy lenses and other fancy stuff… I get intimidated. I cannot afford the $3,000 lens as I have always done it as a hobby. It’s a hobby I practice with great passion nevertheless, and I get various results. But I often manage to take enough photos to have a few I can present to the world. I shot so many shows that it was very hard to pick the best ones… but here are some of the favorite concert photos I took in 2022. Let’s hope I can top this in 2023.
