Today’s guest is Kyser Lough, a music photographer and Ph.D. student in the School of Journalism at the University of Texas at Austin.
What made this interview so fascinating for me was that Kyser is the first one I know of who wrote 2 research-based papers in the field of concert photography. And as he told me there is almost no literature in the academic field about this topic out there. So he is helping with his findings to make the concert photography community even better.
Kyer had a closer look at the body movements of concert photographers in the photo pit and how behaviors like blocking others can have an effect on the whole group. In addition, he interviewed women about their experiences in the male-dominated photo pits and drew some interesting conclusions which can help us to make the photo pit a safe place for all of us.
