When you are starting out in the music business or any other business for that matter, it is always hard to get the bus moving down the road when you first get started. It takes a lot of hard work, in the beginning to make things happen. One of the things that bands forget about a ctually often forgotten about the most is branding. Branding the band and the look of the band is one of the first things done before setting out. Face it, its one of the first things that is going to sell who you are and what your about.
A few music artist are lucky enough to get signed to a big label , but that is not the truth for the other 99 percent of all bands. They are trying to make a name for themselves out on the road or even down at the local pub. So what happens is that they start with their buddy that has a camera. I am not saying that this is not a good idea, but would you want to put all your work into a shot that looks like it was not professional. So the next time, your out playing a gig… think about singing with that guitar from Roses and a mic from the gas station. The same goes with your images of a band… find someone who knows how to sell you.
