if you pose people and bring a softbox, studio flash and stand with you - you too can take photos exactly like that.

yeah, but who does?! i figured it was at least interesting to see someone take the time and effort to do it. god knows i'm tired of seeing poorly composed, ugly flash / long exposure combos of crowds with intellibeams, or dj's at a turntable.
plus, there's plenty of nightlife magazines out there that pose people for shots, and the shots are still lifeless and unflattering.

whatever, thought they were pretty cool compared to the norm.

yeah...maybe it they did a series of "the pass" shots it would be more realistic!

because of these guys, on the other side of the world : turning club photography into an art form.

they are nice photos , but not club shots.
Club shots are all about catching the vibe and energy of a night. Sure there are alot of snap shots friends take of eachother that might not be the best, but when you take a look a someone like Ryan Parks work it is exactly what "club " photography should be.

I was just gonna say.


I have tons of club pics that I'm using for my thesis on hedonism and counter-culture. With the right equipment, you can do anything.

That's called a really fucking big-ass/or wide-range flash and some clever Photoshopping.
THOSE have to be Photoshopped.

That is not club photography. It might be taken IN a club.

Those are staged photographs. No one can take candid shots like that in a dark place unless they had some robot automatic camera.

When I take shots in the club... I take a lot, poor lighting, shitty digital delay... ;)

But I get a few great ones here and there.

For me it's about capturing the moment...

Recent one I liked...



Capturing a DJ in a wicked mix in deep concentration, a party goer totally into the moment, that's what it's about for me when shooting at a club.
