Today it´s Portfolio Thursday – Episode 5 and I´ll have a look at Anja Ivanovic Portfolio.
|Where do you live||Ljubljana, Slovenia|
|For how long have you been a concert photographer||almost 5 years|
|Equipment||Nikon 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.
