Welcome to my website.
I am Steve Bone, a freelance photographer specialising in live events and concerts.
I am based in Auckland but enjoy travelling to other parts of the country to photograph gigs.
In 2012... I photographed in Auckland, Wellington and Martinborough plus one gig in Napier (my first ever).
In 2013 saw me head to Kaitaia, Kerikeri, Tauranga, Hawke's Bay, Martinborough, Wellington Queenstown, Invercargill and LONDON... so you could say I got to spread my wings more than the previous year.
2014 - I had an ever growing list of gigs I wanted to shoot and managed to get to enough to keep myself happy.
2015 was quite an adventure including trips to Aussie and back ticking off Mumford and Sons (twice) and Jake Clemons, Bruce Springsteen's saxophonist.
2016: Wait and see... ... ...
The reason that I photograph concerts?
I would say it is to try to share with others (including the artist) what my view of the artist is... and to try to capture the candid moments on and backstage.
An other reason is to serves as a tool for others that were at the concert to re-live the night.
I hope to continue to photograph throughout the year.
If there is a particular shot that you would like, drop me a line as I may have what you are looking for.
Thanks for dropping by.
