Could you introduce yourself?
I’m Anthony D’Amato, a musician based in Brooklyn, NY. I spend a lot of my time on tour around the US and Europe and I like to take my camera with me on the road to document all the different scenes and people I encounter.
Current city: Brooklyn, NY
What’s your process?
I keep my Nikon D750 with me on the road, and I try to seek out dramatic landscapes or historic sites without straying too far from my tour routing. Sometimes I’ll shoot early in the morning before I hit the road for the day and other times I’ll shoot late at night after my performances are over. If I have an off day between shows, I’ll try to spend it somewhere with a lot of photo opportunities.
Why did you get into photography?
Photography has always been a hobby of mine but as I started spending more and more time on the road, it developed into a really important outlet for me. Most of the time, I’m touring as a solo acoustic artist so I have a lot of time on my own. Photography became a way to add some adventure to my long days of traveling and to connect and share my experiences with fans on a deeper level.
What do people typically say about your work?
I originally started sharing the images I was making on my social media feeds for the fun of it, but I started getting requests for prints from fans who felt really strongly about the photographs and the feelings they evoked.
