Rock Legends Photographers

are professionals

Anyone with a camera or a cell phone can get lucky and capture a few good concert and band photos at a concert, but only professional concert photographers with professional gear can truly capture the emotions that connect the bands with the fans. Concert photography is the very hardest type of photography to master, even harder than sports photography. The challenges of dealing with fast action, ever changing lighting situations, and not being able to use a flash make it very difficult to get more than a handful of  great concert photos.


We have recruited a staff that are experts at capturing the emotions of both the bands and the fans at concerts to provide you with great concert photos, interviews, and reviews of concerts, festivals, and music cruises around the world!

EXPERIENCE:


Some of the hundreds of bands and artists we have PROFESSIONALLY PHOTOGRAPHED on stage, back stage, and/or in the photo pit include concert photos of:

We partnered up with "Beat Magazine International" and "Concert Photos magazine" to bring you the total package... photos, news, reviews, and awesome articles. http://www.rocklegendsphotos.com/ ROCK-BLUES-JAZZ-Any type of music photos In 2008 we created Rock Legends Photographers and specialize in capturing images of legendary rock, blues, and jazz artists. We personally capture over 100,000 images a year and have become known for capturing the emotion of both the artists and the fans at a concert. Because of the demand for quality concert photos we now have over 50 photographers around the US, Germany, and New Zealand. Today we have a reach of over 6 million music fans around the world. We have been published worldwide in over 35 countries! Any good photographer can shoot great photos, but we specialize in capturing all of the emotions of the events we cover! We also promote the venues that we shoot in and help them sell tickets! On stage- We know exactly where to be at the right moment and at the same time stay out of everyone's way. With many years experience on stage I know exactly how to move around a stage whether it's standing on the corner of the drummer's platform or carefully leaning out into the crowd to get that special angle of your guitar player's best shredding. From the front row- we will capture professional wide angle photos of the entire band and stage set up as well as extreme close-up individual performer shots . From back stage- we know you are very busy so we'll quickly get those posed group shots that everybody loves! Crowd photos - everybody loves the crowd shots of their fans enjoying themselves while you play! Meet and Greets - we will capture all those special photos that your fans love! Video - we shoot at 60FPS (movies are only shot at 24FPS) in true high definition with excellent Dolby stereo sound (see video samples at the bottom)


Thank you Robert Cowan for taking the time. you have renewed some new creativity.

Gig Michael - Swamp Da Wamp

Michael Yanko, and The RLC photographers  (Rock Legends Photographers). Hell, I feel like I’ve known these guys forever, I think we actually met before the RLC, but nonetheless Rina and Michael have taken some of our favorite shots. They have supported the Swamp in more ways than one. They have driven hundreds of miles and put many hours into capturing images of the band. They have never once asked for anything, which is a blessing for a broke rock band barely able to even take it on the road! Some of my favorite times were on the RLC just goofing off with Michael on stage before, during and after the shows. Michael and Rina work as a team and get the different angles to ultimately capture the “good shot” which, let me tell you, takes about 1,000 pictures to find! Honestly, it does. One thing we will never forget is that Michael and Rina are responsible for introducing us to William Chappell of Chappell Entertainment, our management company of 1 year and we’re going stronger than ever. So thank you Mike and Rina for all you have done for us, for all you continue to do, and for just being cool ass people! One of my favorites from Rina and Mike!
