Oftentimes, the lines between several creative disciplines blur. Music and photography, albeit, distinct art forms, have similarities. We sought to seek our guest’s ideas on whether music from their clients inspires them to create certain unique results.
Undoubtedly, music photographers on MuseConvos Twitter Space had countless experiences to share on the impact their works have had on musicians. A typical example is KwameKoda’s re-imagining of Fameye’s image, making the rising artiste a more compelling character and his identity more visually appealing.
Nevertheless, like many creative disciplines, the commercial viability of becoming a music photographer and the appreciation for may be lacking as Rob Photography laments. To this, Kwame Koda and Sabtiya Wahaba Abubakar stressed the importance to determine and communicate your value as a photographer so much that, it becomes easier for you to facilitate proper working relationships with your clients. The uprising Erica who has worked with artists like Mr. Eazi and for brands like Sony also stressed on the need for contracts and to leverage legal assistance as a music photographer.
