Meet photographer Brian Friedman who started out as a road manager for the legendary jazz drummer Roy Haynes. But it was during Haynes’ 20-city tour, that Brian began photographing Roy and discovered his passion for image-making that put him on a road to a new career. Since then, he has become recognised as the photographer of choice by noted entertainment personalities, corporate leaders, event planners and individuals. His clients include iHeartRadio, Clearchannel Communications, NBC, CBS, 20th Century Fox, and comedians, Brian Regan and Bill Burr, to name a few. Brian’s images have appeared in The New York Times, USA Today, People, Playboy, The Economist, andPollstar to name a few. In 2007-2008 Brian had the distinct honour of photographing Barack and Michelle Obama for the 'Obama for America' campaign. Brian walks us through a typical shoot and shares his thought process. He discusses the importance of bringing the right energy to a shoot, developing a style, the importance of playing the long game, the best shooting angles for concerts and events, gear choices, and back up protocol. Brian also takes us through a large group shot shoot with 500+ people and heaps more.
