Photography – Best Music Shots of 2019

Following on from the success of 2018’s feature, we have once again been scouring the many awesome live music shots taken across the year for your delectation. We’re very lucky at Breaking Glass to be in contact with many talented music photographers; some established, some just starting out – and it’s great to see the different styles and interpretations of shots that come through.  This year’s collection again covers numerous genres of music and includes images ranging from small, intimate gigs to huge festivals. As always, they’re not in any particular order so please check out every single one of them to avoid missing something special. To see more from each photographer, just click on the links in their credit. 2019’s been a good one…
