Shooting gigs and festivals around the world was and is always my dream job (I literally dream about capturing artists on stage!). Having the trust from the artists and organisers to shoot their concerts and events is an awesome feeling. During that time I have been able to experience many wonderful moments, not just on the stage but with the people I have met along the way. To remember all the best moments I had as a music photographer, I started my #GigCapture series on Twitter, posting one photo from a gig everyday. Below is a selection of photos from the most recent music events I have shot. Some of them are local music events based in England, such as Fez Presents, O2 Academy, The Tuesday Club, Hope Works and Ahora; some of them are captured at the most crazy music festivals like Creamfields, Isle of Wight Festival, Global Gathering, iTunes Festival, Mint Festival, Cocoon in The Park, Beach Break Live.. Artist clients including Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Hardwell, MATTN and more. For me, all these little moments mean everything. I believe my portfolio is very important to myself and I always try my best to photograph every event to the absolute best of my ability. I constantly look for new angles and build my collection of images. I never just go through the motions, or photograph every event the same. I want everything I photograph to be honest and raw, creating photos that best reflect the atmosphere and what music brings to the crowd. The style of my photography is very much documentary and photojournalistic. As mentioned previously, I try to capture those inbetween moments that show what the DJs, artists, crowd and party are all about. If you want to see some more of my images or find out more upcoming music events happening in the UK, you can send me a message via our contact page. No matter the size of your party, the destination of your event or however unique it is, I want to be involved in your night. Music photographer UK, Lanty Zhang.
