Connecting musicians & music photographers
From our own experience we have realized that it is very difficult for musicians to find photographers. Which in reverse means that photographers are only rarely found. SHOWGRAPHERS is here to change that! It's purpose is to showcase music photographers from around the globe & give musicians a tool to browse through these profiles when they're in need of a photographer.
Even though this platform is completely free, it doesn’t mean that the photographers work for free. We’re addressing both aspiring and professional photographers, so there will be a great variety. Get in touch with them on their socials or via email to negotiate the fee.
ON TOUR? SQUEEZE IN A SHOOTING!
So you're traveling the world and have some time on your hand or even a day off? Arrange a photo shooting with a local photographer! They know the best spots in the city and you can bring home some new memories or your next album cover image.
MUSICIANS, MAKE MORE OUT OF YOUR GIGS!
If you're playing a show, hire a photographer and take some of the magic home. Post the pictures on your socials and show everyone who couldn't come, what they've been missing out on. Potential bookers will love to see where you already played and to get an impression of your live atmosphere.
ALWAYS ON THE LOOKOUT? GET FOUND!
Music photographers, we know you all have your favorite artists to work with. But sometimes they're all abroad and we could use some new challenges, right? Searching for new jobs can be quite time consuming, so why not get found for once?
INTERESTED? SIGN UP NOW!
It doesn't matter where you're based or what your favorite genre is, as long as you take music photography serious, you are welcome to sign up! But please understand that we have to manually verify your profile before showing it in the search.
Check out our blog where we interview photographers, bands and people who work at music blogs, festivals or who run a community / network. And you can even participate yourself cause once a month we pick a topic everyone can write their own story about.
"The idea sparked 2 years ago when I worked with a lovely up and coming band that went on tour and wanted to invite photographers to their gigs. But guess what? Finding photographers in several cities wasn‘t as easy as it should have been!"
"This is so needed! From personal experience I’m aware that it can be particularly difficult for photographers to connect with musicians and get their work noticed. Showgraphers is set to be a valuable platform that will help to carry aspiring music photographers forward into professional careers."
