When I shoot concerts, especially Jazz concerts, I love to do performance portraits. Performance portraits are not just pictures of someone playing an instrument or singing. Every shot is that. The moments I search for are the ones in between the notes when the artist’s personality really shines through their instrument. When the artist is fully in the moment of the music . When Jazz becomes the air that carries the breathe of those experience the performance: from the stage. from the audience. Or through the camera.
