The COOPH team have put a very cool photography tutorial together that's all about gig/music/concert photography and they've joined forces with Leica photographer Michael Agel to bring you their latest top tips.

Michael kindly invited the COOPH to join him for Jamie Cullum’s show at the Montreux Jazz Festival where he shared the tips he has gained from more than 30 years working as a music photographer.

The historic festival provides the perfect setting for photography; with a beautiful stage design and excellent light to help Michael capture the most exciting moments from the show on his Leica CL but the tips that he shares you can use at any music event - even if you're just photographing a new band at your local. 

Tips Michael shares include the fact that 'light is key', that you need to build trust, discretion is important and you need to 'wait and observe' before hitting the shutter button. 

If you have any music-themed images, please do share them with us in our Gallery and any tips are welcome in the comments below.
