Here’s a chance for photographers in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) to learn the ins and outs of music concert photography from a shooter has been there…and back. Toronto-based concert photographer Darko is conducting a concert photography workshop and there’s a chance there might be a ticket or two still available. The workshop is being held at Darko’s studio on Richmond Street in Toronto on Sunday, Feb. 24 from noon to 6 p.m.
Here’s the copy from a flyer that was sent to members of the Oakville Camera Club and I sure couldn’t have said it any better:
Darko has been on the bus with Motley Crue, had coffee with Ozzy, zombies for brunch with Slash, dinner with AC/DC and all nighters with the Scorpions and fancy desserts with Phil Collins.
Darko survived the mosh pits of Biohazard, Slayer and Pantera, the warzones of Metallica tours, blistering heat thrown off by pyro explosions by KISS and Black Sabbath. He’s dodged spitballs from Marylin Manson, had the best seat in the house at sold out shows, record release parties, and, contrary to popular belief, HE shot Kurt Cobain……Darko has been behind the scenes with Madonna, Steven Tyler, Van Halen, Neil Young, Bon Jovi, Ted Nugent and the list goes on and on.
Somehow he remembers most of it. Thanks to his camera. Ask him, but speak up, he has only one good ear left.
So bring your own equipment and get the inside scoop on getting the gigs and clearances to shoot concert photography. Checkout Darko’s site to get a sense of what you’re in for if you can get a ticket to the workshop. His images are amazing.
