I've decided to follow what I enjoy the most and spend more time shooting music festivals. But as most festivals operate with volunteer photographers, there is no money in it just a lot of out of pocket expenses..what's needed for me to do this is camping equipment so I can keep accommodation costs down. Thanks for all your help.
I'm a music and artistic photographer on evenings and weekends, weekdays I'm the at home parent raising 3 young sons. Life is busy and chaotic and art is my sanity break.. Based in Melbourne Australia, mostly photographing, community events and concerts, with the occasional model shoot for fun.. where there is no money to be made. Like any artist, the musicians that I'm photographing are trying to carve a career in the industry and they are the ones that need promotional photos, sadly they are usually also broke and I end up working for free. Often up and coming musicians don't have a budget for photography. Photography equipment can be really expensive, it unfortunately also has a limited lifespan. So if you love what I do and would like to give me a little encouragement please consider buying me a coffee.
