My name is Angela Pauly, and I love live music. I am a photographer specializing in live concert photography, as well as promo shots for bands, musicians, and performers. I am also a graphic designer, and offer assistance with band identity and designing and assembling promo packs. I am located in the Denver, Colorado area, but am available for travel worldwide.
I attended a concert recently, not as a photographer, as a music lover. Our seats were the very last row of the second level, directly centered with the stage, so we had an amazing view of the crowd. I realized as the night progressed, how powerful music really is. Music is one common interest that can bring all these different people, from so many different places and backgrounds, together in one place. Every single person in attendance was there to support their passion for music, the artist performing, and just to have a few hours of relief from the chaos that life can present.
My work is inspired by my passion for music and performance, and the emotional connections I have with each. My goal for each photograph is to not capture an image, but to document the emotion in the performance. I believe that using a flash while photographing a show, minimizes the impact of the amazing colors in the stage lighting, leaving the colors in the images more vibrant.
