The Studio of Joe Russo Photography. – Another year of shooting live music is in the books. Seems like it was a very busy and solid year all around photography-wise. This was my first full year back on the East Coast since moving back almost 2 years ago. Over the course of the year, many bands came across my lenses…from huge arena acts to much smaller acts getting their feet wet. I tried to vary the types of artists I was going to shoot as well. I shot way less music festivals [one!] then I have in the past while focusing on more celebrity and art related events. Along the way, I’ve met a lot of really talented photographers…it was an honor and pleasure working with most of you. You helped to keep my game sharp so that I can continue to bring you all the quality photos I pride myself on.
In total, I photographed 112 bands…all while taking off most of the entire month of April to shoot the Tribeca Film Festival…as well as being an Art and Celebrity Event Photographer month to month. [I’ll put up a Year In Review for all of the Art and Event Photography I’ve done this past year].
Looking foward to seeing what this year has to offer.
