I shoot Rockstars!
My name is Aaron Cushing, and I shoot rockstars.
As a musician, I have a distinct advantage when shooting live concerts. I am able to intuitively anticipate the physical and musical movement of artists on stage, and I understand how lighting and pyro designers craft their show — all with the result of dynamic band images that capture the personality of the musicians.
For exciting live performance photographs of bands and solo musicians, you need Contract Shooter on your media team.
My images are well executed and artistic, but also journalistically true. I own the proper equipment to deliver this level of work on a consistent basis. I'm comfortable (and not star-struck!) working around artists and understand the logistics and pressures of working in a fast and loud environment.
I'd love to meet with you to discuss working together to photograph your next concert, festival, or event. Contact me here and we'll set something up.
Contract Shooter has photographed on behalf of bands, promoters, venues, and media outlets in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Maine, and New Hampshire. I am able to travel as required to cover your next event.
I can provide one-off event coverage, or full tour media support. I can coordinate photography and media teams for your festival. I can even function as a stand-in drum tech or stage setup/load-in if necessary.
The roster of musical acts that I've photographed reads much like a Top 100 list of Contemporary Christian artists, and includes Chris Tomlin, Michael W. Smith, Petra, Newsboys, Skillet, Switchfoot, NEWWORLDSON, Greg Sczebel, Thousand Foot Krutch, Matthew West, Steven Curtis Chapman, Jars of Clay, MercyMe, Manafest, Peter Furler, Audio Adrenaline, Toby Mac, Jamie Grace, Crowder, Sanctus Real, The Letter Black, Jeremy Camp, For King and Country, Gungor, The City Harmonic, Rhett Walker, Hillsong Live, Disciple, Third Day, and many more!
