360° Concert Photography: The 2019 Hit List
When we started doing 360 & VR content in 2016, our first few gigs as 360 photographers were at the biggest music events in our state of North Carolina. Since then we’ve been called on to shoot 360 photography for some of the dopest artists, events and brands in the world!
Our first 360° camera was a Panono 16k cam. It only does photography, but I’ve got to say: this camera shoots the hell out of a 360° photo.
The entire time we’ve been building our 360 image archive, we’ve been putting photos in the bank with a resolution of 16,000x8,000 pixels.
It’s kind of crazy to say, but we have the biggest collection of hi-res 360° concert photography in the world.
As we jump in 2019, I’m sharing our ever-expanding 360° hit list along with a wish list of artists & events that we’d love to collaborate with. Where possible, I’ve linked out to the requisite 360° photo.
