Why candid

What is candid photography?

It is a photograph that is captured without creating a posed appearance.

For example:

  • when the subject is in motion
  • by avoiding prior preparation of the subject
  • by surprising the subject
  • by not distracting the subject during the process of shooting photos

Why candid photography? 

‘Candid photography helps to create a private more intimate connection between the performer and viewer. My ultimate goal is to capture ‘natural emotion’ of a musician and their instrument.  It is not possible to photograph music in of itself,  but, I can capture a musician in their ‘zone’. Providing the artist with an emotionally charged and captivating album cover’.
