My Heart Rate Rapid

A couple of months ago, while dreaming of spending a sunny summer in Sydney, I came across the photography of Daniel Boud.  I think I may have found my favourite music photographer. Boud specialises in live concert photography, something I am interested in myself so it's been very inspiring looking at his website, especially because he hasn't been formally trained either. I found his guide to concert photography very helpful. At Holy Fuck the other night, the lighting was beautiful (blue and red side lighting) and I wished I had taken my camera with me. Even more so after looking at the photos he took at Nevereverland Sydney over the weekend. Where are New Zealand's good live photographers, hmmm? I can name a few, but I can't think of one in particular that I actually like. Someone needs to change that, fast. Here are some of my favourites of Boud's:
