Behind the camera: Ludwig Gross

profileWho are you? Hi my name is Ludwig Gross, and I am a photographer from Munich, Germany. Beside music I do lots of sports photography, and I work for one of the biggest photo magazines in Germany as an editor and photographer.

How did you get started? I was always a dream to combine two of my favourite hobbies – music and photography. While living in Toronto in 2011, I started applying for photopasses to get into shows for free – mostly bands I listen to. And Quickly I got chances to shoot bigger and bigger shows.

What’s in the bag?

  • 2x Canon EOS 5D Mark3
  • Canon 24-70/2.8mm lens
  • Canon 70-200/2.8mm lens
  • Canon 8-15mm fisheye lens
  • Blackrapid straps

Which photographers do you admire? There are to many inspiring photographers out there. Just to name two of them: David Drebin (one of the best photographers) and Adam Elmakias (in my eyes, he’s the best music photographer around)

Your top 3 tips for music photographers?

  • Use ear-plugs
  • bring your fisheye lens
  • enjoy the show

My favourite shot is? The Bouncing Souls, taken at the Rockfest 2011 in Montebello, Quebec, Canada. It was just a fun show to shoot with one of my favourite bands – and without any time restrictions (no three songs limitation).
