Oliver Lopena, Princeton Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement I'm a freelance photographer and live music junkie. I attend concerts throughout the NYC, NJ, and Philadelphia areas (and sometimes beyond). I'm passionate about music & photography and don't just cover the "popular" artists. Every band that plays good music deserves to have equally good photos taken of them... that's where I (hope to) come in. I have the freedom to be deliberate in choosing whom to photograph because it's not a job for me... it's all about the music (and the art). It has been rewarding to gain some recognition and appreciation in the process - music photography has allowed me to meet so many different & interesting people. If you see me at a concert, please don't hesitate to introduce yourself (I'm friendly). I hope you enjoy my images and that they're successful in conveying the essence of each person/artist/performance.
In addition, feel free to browse my photos on Flickr - if you'd like to request any images for me to add to the gallery, shoot me a message and I'll gladly oblige.
