Concert photography is my second favorite thing outside of writing music reviews. A good concert picture is crisp and clear, high resolution and perfectly captures the moment. These are some individuals that have been working hard at perfecting their shots.
Long Beach native Lexis Rother, better known as Ro.Lexx has been doing editorial, live show work and close-ups of popular artists Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Drake and The Weekend.

Natalie focuses on portrait, live music and polaroid shots. She can be found shooting shots for the Observatory OC in Santa Ana and major music publications like Billboard and Noisey. Her portraiture seeks to liven natural beauty of the subject while paying close attention to composition.

I first found Kevin while on Instagram’s explore page. At one point, he was constantly seen at concerts I attended for my platform. Outside of music, he is a fashion photographer, shooting influencers like Aleali May and Jordyn Woods and DJ’s like Kaytranada. Gonzalez’s Snapchat also captures personal moments of hustle and execution as a director.
