I first started taking photos of live music in 2003 at gigs around Melbourne and have become well-known in the local scene.
I realize there are now many people doing the same thing, but not really at the gigs I go to as they are usually bands I know personally.
As well as music, I take photos at events and also have covered burlesque and most recently roller derby.
At the moment I don’t really have the facilities for studio or more traditional artistic photography work, but it would be fun to to.
An archive of my work can be found at http://photos.timchuma.com
