We are Antiphoto, and since 2007 we’ve been photographing musicians. Unlike many photographers who work as individuals, we work as a team. Our collaborative nature gives us a unique advantage. We work with clients to fuse our individual perspectives to create one unified vision.
I’ve always drawn to photography. I remember being as young as three-years-old and wanting to capture every moment through a camera’s lens. As an adolescent, I grew apart from the camera. I was afraid that I wasn’t good enough to take photos, that I didn’t have the right gear or education. Outwardly I acted as though I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life, but secretly I wanted to study photography. In college I fell in love with editing video as a film major. Putting together images and sound to create a cohesive story just felt right. But still, something was missing. By chance I was asked to try out a new DSLR for my department, a Canon Rebel XT. I was hooked. Since then I feel like I haven’t been able to stop. And I haven’t. I haven’t stopped learning and growing in photography and I’m not sure I ever will. I just try to keep pushing myself to be better than I was before. And if I forget to push myself, then Joanna will politely nudge me. - John
When I was younger, I was told that I saw things other people didn’t. Either it was my overactive imagination or I saw the world differently somehow. I always wanted to share my vision but I couldn’t figure out how to show it. Like goldilocks, I attempted all sorts of mediums until I found what was just right for me; photography. Music is special, when we hear it we see things, we feel it. Music photography for me is about showing what we see and feel. - Joanna
