How I Became: A Music Photographer
Jorja Smith shot by Vicky Grout
Welcome back to How I Became, a series where we ask creatives to discuss how they got into their role, what struggles they've faced in the industry, and how they overcame them.
Photographing a live show is surely an exciting job, capturing and getting personal with artists, bands and performers in their natural habitat and feeding off the energy of the crowd. Becoming a music photographer is, however, a competitive process and landing a good concert or show to shoot can be a challenge. This week we speak to music photographers Guy Cross (Opens in a new window), Claryn Chong (Opens in a new window) and Vicky Grout (Opens in a new window) about their journey affirming themselves in the industry.
