This is a very specific type of photography, that’s listed here for a reason, rather than just a generic ‘find work’, and that reason is because it’s easy to get into. Seriously. If you ever go to a nightclub, and I mean a proper one, not some bland chain club where they charge you an arm and a leg to get in, I’m talking about local clubs with well established promoters. These promoters all want photos from their club nights, and you can be the one to provide them. It’s worth the promoter paying for a photographer to come along and take photos, because these photos end up on Facebook and are used to promote the clubnight.
If you go to many clubs, then you’ll probably notice that the majority of the photographers are in their early 20’s, and living locally, students perhaps. So you don’t have to have the greatest experience in the world to get work. If you want to expand your photography before you start looking for work, then go down to a clubnight with your camera anyway. I have NEVER been stopped from going into a club with my camera, because the bouncers just don’t care, and neither do the promoters. As a little added bonus if you enjoy this sort of thing, you start going to a lot of gigs for free. Go out tonight with your camera and take some photos at a local club/gig/event.
