The Music Scene
July 17 - July 23, 2011

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Blues, rock and roll, jazz, hip-hop, classical, rap, country, folk, bluegrass, opera—the music scene in any village, town, or major metropolis can be wide and varied. And every musician, band, quartet, ensemble, and symphony needs photographs to broadcast their identity to the world. Exploring the intriguing niche market of the music scene is the focus of this first-of-its-kind workshop, led by celebrated portrait photographer Christopher Wray-McCann.

Special technical skills and varied photographic experience are necessary to capture the intensity of a live concert, as well as a solo musicians’ unique character in a studio or location portrait session. Emotionally driven, musicians are sensitive, sometimes insecure, and therefore temperamental. This volatile mix creates unique challenges for portrait photographers who need to please their clients and still produce compelling, artistic images. All these issues and more are discussed, dissected, and demonstrated through lectures, assignments, location shoots, and critiques.

The music scene is not likely to keep you employed year-round. It can however, create opportunities that are an exciting, fun, and lucrative addition to your life as a photographer. Christopher makes sense of this ever-changing marketplace, and helps you develop the mindset, technical skills, and unique portrait style to flourish in your local music scene.
