Hi my name is Matthias Hombauer and I am a pro music photographer.
You’re passionate about music and photography and your dream is to get started with concert photography?
However, there can be a lot of challenges and frustrations
- it´s hard to get started without any professional photography training
- it´s hard to know which camera gear you should buy in the beginning (there are so many options, and it’s difficult to decide!)
- It´s hard to figure out all the camera settings to get the best shots in front of the stage (the automatic camera mode won´t do the trick)
- It´s hard to build your first portfolio
All these new challenges can be quite overwhelming and if you don´t find someone to guide you, it can take you years until you get started.
Since I know that you don´t have the time to waste years of your life to figuring all of this out I’m offering a step-by-step video guide that will help you get started and kickstart your music photography career (it doest matter if it´s only your hobby or if you want to become a pro).
"Matthias is a great Mentor and I learned so much from his concert photography course. My favourites were the camera & lens lessons. He gave a simple, but in depth overview about a topic that I was always scared of. There are a some many options and I didn´t even know which camera and lens I should buy for concert photography. After this course I have the confidence to start as music photographer and I can´t wait to get out and try the things I have learned. Thank you so much!" - Lin *****
