Live Music Gig Photography Workshop
19th – 21st April 2019
Bluethumb Photography presents an amazing opportunity to shoot live music events.
This workshop gives delegates the opportunity shoot a full live music festival ‘Titans Of Tribute’ over the course of the weekend 19th-21st April at the legendary Tivoli Venue in Buckley.
The workshop will begin on Friday 19th at 3pm – 6pm with a classroom based instruction and guidance from full time freelance Tivoli house photographer Jim. During this session you will learn all about shooting a live multi band music event. You will learn the rules for shooting in the press/photo pit and the necessary etiquette required once you are in there.
You will be given a guided tour of the venue itself in order to familiarise yourself with the layout and to point out where you are permitted to shoot from. You will be given guidance on composition and what to look out for when you are shooting as well as settings used during the shoot. This part of the workshop will finish around 6pm to give every one chance to grab a bite to eat and drink before the first band goes on stage.
Jim will be on hand throughout the festival to give guidance and answer any questions during and after each performance, he will also be shooting the event too. Delegates are free to attend and cover as much of the event as they wish but it is important that the classroom session is attended as this will form part of the health and safety aspect of the workshop and is also when you will be handed your VIP Photo Pass. **You will NOT be permitted to shoot the event without a pass but can still attend the festival itself.**
Numbers are strictly limited and on a first come first served basis. No refunds will be given in the event of none attendance. By booking to attend the workshop you are agreeing that you know the basics of photography and have a good understanding of how to use your own camera set up, there simply wont be enough time or opportunity to cover basics.
It is highly recommended that you bring suitable ear plugs with you to the event and please note you will not be permitted to shoot from the photo pit without them! A full list of times and band schedules will be announced to you before the start of each day.
Places are strictly limited – you can secure yours now. £75 advance.
