Does anybody know of any good/famous gig photographers I can look at?
William Gottlieb and William Claxton for classic jazz photos.
Mr Mc Lean for some classic Iron Maiden
Jim Marshall was one of the pioneer rock photographers.

Try Larry Fink's book, Somewhere There's Music. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NlzpM0nPy4
"The Moment - 25 Years of Rock Photography" by Jill Furmanovsky.
Thankyou once again for the leads kind sirs. Will have a look at the names mentioned. I'm looking at Andrew Kendalls stuff which is cracking. It's all d*****l but nevermind. Here's a recent print I totally overlooked cause I never thought it'd print til scanning it, the merit in bothering to print contact sheets eh.
Herman Leonard was a master of 50s/60s jazz photography. The Eye of Jazz is a good book if you can find a copy.
p.s. Valerie Wilmer also wrote about and photographed jazz and blues in the 60s/70s. I have one of her books The Face of Black Music
A few Australians who have done some good work over the years:
Sophie Howarth who recently published a book about an annual music event which happened to be on again today, Australia Day, in Sydney:
Also Colin Beard and Graeme Webber did some pioneering work in the 60/70s for Australia's fledgling RockMag publications. Graeme's book Australian Rock Folio is like a picture diary of my teenage years following bands around. Some great early AC/DC shots in there. I don't think these two guys have much of a presence on the web.
Modesty almost prevents me but you might also like to look at my APUG portfolio!
Live performance photography is one of my favourite things to do. I'd be happy to share my thoughts/techniques if you want to PM me any time.
Modesty might prevent Tony, but it won't prevent me. Look at his work here. It's first rate....and what's more, he will probably answer any questions you might have. Having an in house master is a very good thing!
Anton Corbijn is also not to be missed. not live but very good.
I just saw some of Richard Aaron's work at small local gallery. Here's a link to his website: http://www.rockpix.com/
See what you've done now!.... got me looking through my bookshelves and going on a bit of a nostalgia trip! One more Australian photographer who has done some good gig photography over the years is Bob King.
You can see some of his stuff on this site which has thousands of music photos. You need to register first to enlarge and the images are protected by some imposing watermarks but it is designed as a commercial image bank and has a mix of good and bad. Record shots, promos etc but worth a click through for some ideas or inspiration....
p.s. Bugger modesty, I think John has impeccable judgement!
Another vote for Jim Marshall. He's shot just about everybody! He also has a couple of books out. Based in San Francisco, he's got lots of early 60's musicians. Baron Wolman was one of the first photographers for Rolling Stone, you can see lots of his work on his website. I have a print of Keith Moon by Eric Hayes, he got started out west and later moved to England to shoot the music scene. Mick Rock is another - he started in England, now he lives in New York. Those are just off the top of my head. Do you have a particular period or artist in mind?
Ian Grant has been shooting concerts for years I know - send him a PM!
Can't see the bleedin' galleries. Will have to subscribe one of these days.
I do believe we should have our own member Pro included.
Marcello - all available light - incredible jazz photography
