Music Industry Photography Techniques

When it comes to photographing some of the biggest names in the music industry, photographer Olaf Heine doesn’t think twice about taking a walk on the wild side. He has, after all, asked the likes of Sting to get tied up in chest-deep water with gaffer tape on his mouth and Snoop Dogg to wear a hooded robe and carry a sword like some medieval mercenary. In the following video, Olaf revisits some of his most popular photos while sharing his photographic thought process:

Olaf stresses the point of really believing in one’s ideas and making sure that this belief comes across to his subjects and the rest of the crew. Says Sting of the renowned lensman, “It takes a rare photographer like Olaf to get behind that mask, to reveal the vulnerable soul behind. I do not wish to give myself easily to the eye of a camera unless the person holding it is at risk too.”

And with his edgy brand of music photography, taking risks is exactly what Olaf intends to do.
