One of my favorite pieces of advice that I’ve received as a photographer is this: “Don’t forget the drummer.” Early on in my career, I was backstage with a local band and the guitarist offered me this tip just before the show. He explained that photographers always forget the drummer. It makes sense: drummers are often the most difficult subjects in live music — dimly lit at the back of the stage, hidden by their instruments and often in constant motion. There are much easier subjects than drummers. But because of all these challenges, pulling off a great drummer photo can be one of the most rewarding images to make for a music photographer. Over the years, I’ve taken up this casual suggestion as a mantra of sorts. As a photographer, I now find myself chasing the subjects and moments that are elusive, difficult or passed over. For me, what "Don't forget the drummer" means is that in photography and in life, what challenges us can so often gives us greater value than what comes easily.
