MUSIC IS OUR HERITAGE & WE’RE INCREDIBLY PROUD OF IT
Whether it’s shooting a gig, stealing candid moments backstage or capturing the shot for the music sleeve, we’ve got endless ideas and creativity about how we can create that powerful visual that is eminently you. As a music photographer, we reference epic a lot when we talk about ourselves at Life is Art (when we’re being modest, obviously) but that drive for everything to be EPIC comes from our first love and passion: music.
We’ve produced music photography for artists across the world and across all music genres – the consistent has always been our ability to capture the emotion of a moment, song or artist in a single frame. Whether it needs to be breathtaking, light-hearted, provocative or dark, our music photographers will work with you to create something original, memorable and EPIC.
Our music photography expertise ranges from concerts, intimate gigs, studio shoots and on location – whatever you need.
There is something incredibly special about helping bring music to life visually, and we consider it an honour.
OUR other passion…
Every member of the Life is Art team was or is still in a band, so we genuinely understand the importance of a cohesive brand image and a constant stream of content. We also know how much it can elevate the band brand by having consistent imagery throughout from promo photos to the music video itself. We have spent years lugging hard cases out the back of a venue into the van at 3 am and the connection and energy between the audience and the band. Our live photography will perfectly capture those moments.
Music photography allows for experimentation and bold looks. We’re all open to ideas and like to push the boundaries for adventurous bands.
Why Choose Life is Art
Before we delved into photography, music has always been our first love. It is something that we remain truly passionate about even if we have already jumped ship and changed careers. As a music photographer, our previous affinity with music is something that gives us a great advantage. Because we’ve lived the life and have known what goes on behind the glaring lights and the glitz and glamour, we know how to form an authentic connection with the subjects of our photography, allowing us to bring out genuine emotions that add depth to the images we take.
As a music photographer, our creativity and enthusiasm are boundless. As we have mentioned before, we can provide you with tons of ideas on how we can create visual content that can accurately convey who you truly are as an artist. Whether you require compelling and provocative images for your album, promotional materials, and more, you can count on us to deliver the photos that meet your specific requirements.
Throughout our stint as a music photographer, we’ve been privileged enough to have the rare opportunity to shoot artists and musicians across different genres. We’ve also been lucky enough to visit some of the biggest and most iconic music venues in London and beyond for our photoshoots.
Nonetheless, we find immense pleasure in working with smaller and lesser-known bands and musicians. Their never-ending zeal, passion and drive are something we admire and connect with on a personal level. So whether you’re already an established musician with a considerable following, or a fledgeling artist trying to break through the industry, we are excited and honoured to work with you. We are more than happy to help you show the world what you can do.
Passion and creativity is definitely a requirement if you want to be a successful music photographer (or any kind of photographer, for that matter). However, we are also aware that skills and practical experience are equally important. Fortunately, we have them all in spades here at Life is Art.
Having taken hundreds of photographs and with more than 50 years’ worth of collective experience, our team is absolutely well-versed in the art taking stunning images. We’ve had dozens of delighted clients, including but not limited to MTV, the Universal Music Group, and Warner Music Group. As such, you can count on us to provide you with results that can blow you away.
But don’t just take our word for it. Take a look at our portfolio and see what our music photographers are truly capable of.
Let’s talk about your music photography project
When it comes to music photography, it pays more to work with someone who knows your background and is familiar with your triumphs and struggles as a musician. By finding a photographer who is also a musician themselves, you’ll undoubtedly get access to images that are truly unique, epic, and exceptional.
With years of practical experience and with music as our first love and passion, nothing makes us more perfect and more qualified to take on your project. At Life is Art, we promise to deliver results that will meet or even exceed your expectations.
