Live music photography from all over the world
Welcome to bandphototrade, the first, and the largest, community on livejournal bringing band photographers together. bandphototrade is a great place to post your fabulous band photos. It's also a great place to discuss photographic techniques, how to get photo passes, and how to get paying gigs shooting bands.

Please dont post anything you havent personally photographed -- messing with copyrights can get ugly really fast. Also, no shit talking other peoples work, though if someone asks for opinions, feel free to give 'em an honest one.

Although cuts are not suggested for most postings, if you post more then three images or anything taller or wider than 600px, please put it behind a cut.

This community is now maintained by astrovisionary - many thanks to Suzie and cto for starting it up and keeping it alive and kicking for so long!

P.S. There are other upstart band photography LJ communities out there. Please, let's work to eliminate duplication and ask those folks to only post images to the first, largest, and (IMHO) best live band photography LJ community, bandphototrade.'s, afi, against me!, alkaline trio, american nightmare, analog cameras, anti-flag, at the drive in, band photography, band photos, bands, bars, belle and sebastian, bikini kill, black and white photography, black rebel motorcycle club, blonde redhead, bouncing souls, boy sets fire, bracket, bright eyes, brit pop, brothers keeper, cameras, cat power, clubs, concert photography, converge, cursive, darkrooms, death cab for cutie, developing film, digital cameras, emo, epoxies, film, filmography, flashes, from autumn to ashes, further seems forever, get up kids, gig photography, gigs, go sailor, grey am, groupies, hardcore, hot rod circuit, hot water music, idle hands, independent photographers, indie pop, indie rock, interpol, jimmy eat world, kill hannah, ladytron, le tigre, lighting, little, live music photography, local bands, lucinda williams, mae shi, mates of state, milemarker, minus the bear, mirah, mod, modest mouse, morrisey, motley crue, murder city devils, muse, mxpx, my chemical romance, new order, nofx, oasis, online pictures, pedro the lion, photo passes, photography, piebald, pin box photography, pj harvey, polaroids, posters, pretty girls make graves, publicists, punk rock, q and not u, rainer maria, rasputina, rilo kiley, saves the day, scanning photos, scissorfight, slayer, slideshows, small venues, smoking popes, sonic youth, system of a down, taking back sunday, tegan and sara, the, the anniversary, the bouncing souls, the buzzcocks, the cure, the donnas, the eyeliners, the faint, the good life, the hives, the hope conspiracy, the impossibles, the movielife, the ramones, the raveonettes, the shins, the softies, the streets, the strokes, the unicorns, thursday, tiger army, tilt, too much rock, tracy + the plastics, trading, vanderslice, vfw halls, weezer, xbxrx, xiu xiu, yeah yeah yeahs, yo la tengo, zines
