Alan Hess is a San Diego-based commercial photographer. He has photographed hundreds of concerts, three songs at a time. From small club shows to big arenas, Alan enjoys the fast pace of shooting on the fly, the rush of the house lights going down, and the drive to capture the “show” in the images of first three songs.
The wide variety of bands that Alan has shot include Billy Idol, Black Eyed Peas, Bruce Hornsby, Bullet for my Valentine, Citizen Cope, The Dead, Death Cab for Cutie, Cher, John Legend, Madonna, Marilyn Manson, Robin Williams, Slayer, Steel Pulse, Widespread Panic, and Willie Nelson, just to name a few. Alan is currently the house photographer for a large concert venue in Southern California.
When he isn’t out shooting concerts, he is writing photography books. He is the author of more than a dozen books covering everything from concert and low light photography to the basics of exposure and composition and the Nikon Creative Lighting System. Alan has contributed to Photoshop User magazine and has been a part of the Instructor Dream Team at Photoshop World since 2009. Alan blogs regularly at www.alanhessphotography.com.
