Long-standing CL photographer Brandon English joined Music Editor Chad Radford to kick off a series of semi-regular podcast episodes that are all about photographing live music.

For this conversation, English and Radford discuss shooting recent shows such as Homeboy Sandman and Edan at 529 and Negative Approach at the Masquerade, learning from their failures, and the democratization of photography. It’s a fun conversation about the perils of shooting a moving target in a chaotic environment, with everything from an iPhone to old school film with a point and shoot camera. Press play!

Check out a gallery of images below, featuring pics of Homeboy Sandman and Edan, Negative Approach, Lightning Bolt and more.


And don't forget! John Brannon from Negative Approach returns to Atlanta on Monday, March 11, when Easy Action plays the Earl with Paralyzer and Kongokai.

Some of you may know her for her hit song, "Cannabis Car," which helped expand her awareness of hemp across the nation. Aviva believes we should all be driving cars that run on cannabis and growing home hemp gardens for salads, paper, clothing.
