Photographer Matt Vogel has posted two excellent blogs on his website about how to excel as a music photographer. Check out "My Workflow: How To Stay Sane as a Music Photographer" and "How To Create Value For Yourself as a Music Photographer" over on his website.
There are thousands of aspiring music photographers out there and standing out from the crowd isn't easy. This isn't a tell-all blog post for how to become successful but I wanted to share a few things that helped me get to a place where the bands I work for see me as a valuable asset of their team.

Photographer Adam Elmakias and Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oliver Sykes have teamed up to raise money for Suicide Silence frontman Mitch Lucker's daughter, Kenadee. All money raised will go towards her education fund. Mitch recently passed away after a motorcycle accident. You can purchase the print here, as well as other prints here that will also contribute to the fund.
