Sometimes you get an opportunity you can't say no to. Even if it doesn't fit your brand, and even if it doesn't pay. Sometimes, your coworker gets you a press pass to shoot a rock concert for Kesta Happening DC, for a band you've never heard of, for $0. And sometimes, you just have to say yes!
I was lucky enough to be able to photograph the Rata Blanca concert at the Howard Theatre back in May. And although I'm not a big rock fan, this Argentine band was awesome! I had such a blast shooting this event, and I learned so much. I may not become a concert photographer any time soon, but it was awesome, and I would totally do it again.
Check out some of my favorite shots from the show below!
It was such a blast! You can see more images from the concert and other shows at the Kesta website.
