Playing an instrument, belting out a tune and composing a track are all creative endeavours; however they're not the only artistic aspects of the music industry. If you've been to a gig or fest, seen some ace shots of it afterwards, and intertwined those images with your own memories — and we all have — then you know the power of music photography.
With BIGSOUND taking over Brisbane this week, and with everyone likely to be scrolling through their social media feeds looking at pics from shows they couldn't attend as a result, it's a timely field to be thinking about. That's why Crowbar are hosting Point & Shoot - An Exploration of Music Photography. Yep, it's an unofficial addition to the revelry that highlights some of the best live music photographers and videographers in the business.
From September 6 to 9, the bar's walls will display snaps from small venues, big festivals and more, each capturing your favourite musical acts. An assortment of prints will be available for sale for the very first time too, so you can take this combination of sound and vision home with you.
