THE SHORT VERSION
I'm Brad Moore, an entertainment photographer in Nashville, Tennessee. Two of my biggest passions are music and photography. I love being able to combine the two in an attempt to capture the best moments of shows from a unique and creative perspective. Hopefully I'm able to achieve this goal in a way that gets viewers excited about the music as well.

 

THE SLIGHTLY LONGER VERSION
I'm a guy living in Nashville who loves going to concerts with my camera. I've been around music all my life, though I can't play or sing worth a lick. So photography is the avenue of choice to share my love of music, and hopefully help viewers of my work discover new artists. Plus I get a buzz off being inches away from music legends when I have the chance.

I formerly worked with Scott Kelby and the gang at Kelby Media Group as Scott's photo assistant and the photo studio manager. Among other great opportunities while there, I've been a contributing photographer to some of Scott's bestselling books, including The Digital Photography Book Set, as well as managing his hugely popular guest blog series.

I also spent a couple of years assisting Joe McNally after finishing college. During my time with Joe, I tried to absorb everything I could about lighting and photography while assisting on jobs for National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, Golf Digest, FedEx, Nikon, and Micron. That last client was a particularly eventful job for me…
