Since I’ve got “The Beginners Guide To Concert Photography“ lots of things changed. I became the house photographer for a couple of promoters, had lots of good bands in front of my lens, shot gigs at some of the most famous venues here in London and just recently started to work for a venue with a capacity of up to 3.500 people and all that within just 3 months! I now do what I love and won’t stop anytime soon. Thank you, Matthias, for sharing your knowledge and I can’t wait to learn more. – Nici
