I have been working on this for some time. A marriage home for two fundamental passions!

Music inspires art. Art is used to illustrate and promote music. The two are bound as related life forces. Photography has become the major way in which the ideas and sensuality, wonder and feelings of songs and sounds can be represented visually.

For photographers, music photography has become a market for business and success. Like other vertical markets, it requires work and dedication as well as a love for your subject, here music and lyrics.

We had a bunch of recent nudges, from George "Bear" Bauman and new OPFer Hilary Wolfskill to get going with a showcase and workplace for photography related to music. So we did it and here goes!

The new Music Photography Forum is located here !

Go ahead. Photograph. This is about the best photography you can make to express your inner feelings. Let's have intepretatations of music that inspires you, drives you crazy or that you use to celebrate, comfort or seduce! Post a link to the music, streaming, inexpensive or legal! I'll have excellent free music to download.

Music without accompanying art is welcome for consideration too: as a challenge for photographers to produce images! Good luck!


The photographs and their derivatives are, of course, the of the photographer and must not be used without license from the copyright owner.
