Music Photography Portfolio – Episode 5: Anja Ivanovic

Music Photography Portfolio Anja Ivanovic

Today it´s Portfolio Thursday – Episode 5 and I´ll have a look at Anja Ivanovic Portfolio. 

Name Anja Ivanovic
Where do you liveLjubljana, Slovenia
For how long have you been a concert photographeralmost 5 years
EquipmentNikon D7000, Sigma 17-50 2.8, Sigma 70-200 2.8, Nikkor 50mm 1.8

What do you love about concert photography?
The adrenaline rush when the lights turn on, standing in the pit or the crowd with fans, being able to capture memories for the band and myself.

Tell me about your best experience as concert photographer
There were many. Most memorable one is still being able to shoot Korn. The best experience is to see someone appreciates you and your work – sadly it doesn’t happen often, but there are some musicians, tour managers and people connected to the bands that make your day and push you to keep trying until you make it.

What are your goals for the future?
To go on tour. I would like to see how it is, being on the road. Not necessarily with a big band. I would love to experience van touring with a smaller band – you’ve got to start somewhere right? And video. Video is something I am planning to get better at, so I can offer added value to musicians.

More specifically, you’ll learn in this episode:

  • The number 1 mistake when buildung your portfolio
  • How to build a great portfolio
  • How to choose your best photos

    Great minds think alike they say 🙂 and i agree with you – i should only post 1 photo per band. As for the white space on home page – when seen on 17” screen it fits perfectly, but on bigger screens it looks empty. Will do something about it. And for the photo in about me section – i have something special in mind to show who i am, so for now, while waiting to finish the project, i might add a small photo of me 🙂
    Thanks for your time!

    • Hi Anja! I recognized that the white space is dependent on the size of the screen. However, it’s great that your homepage is a responsive theme so it will work even on small screens. This is a must nowadays, cause a lot of people will watch your site on their mobile phones of tablets. Looking forward to your “about me” photo idea 😉
