Concert Photography with Sidewalk

Water on a Drum

In December 2017 I started to take photos on concerts of and in cooperation with the German Rock and Coverband Sidewalk. It was a new experience for me hence I never had done it before.

There are a lot of challenges in taking photos on rock concerts – very often the musicians move fast on the stage, and the light is changing very often – but I love it. Especially with a band like Sidewalk, playing a lot of my favourite music.

I guess, I will concentrate more on concert photography in future.

Here are some of the photos from the third photo session with Sidewalk, when they performed their Black & White concert at an amazing location in Bad Ems.
