About the course

A Night In The Photo Pit is a photography course that helps beginner photographers build a music photography portfolio they can use to showcase their work to music publications.

How it works.

You’ll be guided through three easy stages to create your music photography portfolio.

[stack_tabs custom_css_class=”text-center”][stack_tabs_content icon=”icon-Photo-Album2″ title=”Before”]

Stack follows the BEM naming convention that focusses on logical code readability that is reflected in both the HTML and CSS. Interactive elements such as accordions and tabs follow the same markup patterns making rapid development easier for developers and beginners alike.

Add to this the thoughtfully presented documentation, featuring code highlighting, snippets, class customizer explanation and you’ve got yourself one powerful value package.

[/stack_tabs_content][stack_tabs_content icon=”icon-Alarm” title=”During”]

Stack offers a clean and contemporary look to suit a range of purposes from corporate, tech startup, marketing site to digital storefront. Elements have been designed to showcase content in a diverse yet consistent manner.

Multiple font and colour scheme options mean that dramatically altering the look of your site is just clicks away — Customizing your site in the included Visual Composer Page Builder makes experimenting with styles and content arrangements dead simple.

01. Shoot bigger bands, quicker

Are you finding yourself being promised access to shoot bigger bands if you shoot hundreds of smaller acts? Matt Warrell’s concert photography course includes a photo pass, regardless of how many bands you have photographed. Whether this is your first time or hundredth time photographing a concert, this fast-tracked access will supercharge your rate of learning.

02. One-on-one mentoring

Get one-on-one mentoring at a real concert. Before each band plays, you’ll get five to ten minutes with Matt to speak about what worked and didn’t work during the previous band and ask any questions for advice on how to make the most of the first three songs in the photo pit.

03. Feedback

After the concert and you have edited your photos, send your best ten through to Matt for some constructive feedback. Matt will draw on your photos to outline areas that are strong and could benefit from improvement, alongside a detailed paragraph for each photo.

04. New dates regularly added

There are new dates added all the time. Stay up to date by following Matt on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or checking back in on Photography Tips For A Beginner’s course page.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have to be over 18?

Unfortunately, yes. I would love to have photographers of all ages taking these opportunities, but because shows take place in venues with alcohol available, they restrict access to under 18s.

How do I get the photo pass?

You’ll pick the photo pass up at the door when you show your photo ID. The photo pass is only valid for the person on the photo ID and is not transferrable.

Is it the only way to photograph a band?

Of course not. These courses are an opportunity to help you create a music photography portfolio that will catch the eye of publication editors. There’ll be other photographers there that already contribute to publications, but only one photographer will be there as part of this photography course.

Does it include backstage access?

No. This course is about becoming a better live music photographer. The photo pass is the same photo pass other photographers have who are shooting for a publication.

Who owns the copyright of the images I take?

You do, of course! You as the photographer own the rights to your work. If you choose to share it with the artist, you are more than welcome to.

What are the rules?

The same rules other photographers operate by will apply to you – nothing extra. The rules that apply are outlined in the quickstart guide you will be provided, but these are common sense. Actions such as pushing others, carelessly obstructing audience views or climbing on stage will not be tolerated. Matt Warrell, the band, the venue or the promoter reserve the right to void a photo pass for any reason (e.g. the stuff just mentioned).
