NME Music Photography Awards 2012
Every great rock photographer knows that anticipating the action is just as thrilling as capturing it – the giddy feeling when one shutter click captures a fleeting second that’ll be laid down in rock legend forever.
Whether it’s the Beatles’ first gig or Arctic Monkeys killing it at Reading and Leeds, the winners of the NME Photography Awards with Nikon know that great rock photography can imprint an image in people’s minds for generations to come. But it’s not just a select few who can capture an astonishing rock photo. With Nikon’s range of compact cameras and DSLRs, specially designed for high-action snapping, you’ll be well on your way to becoming one of NME’s legendary photographers – and they’re giving NME readers the chance to win one.
Nikon knows that it’s all about catching those iconic moments – such as The Cribs’ Ryan Jarman launching himself into an incendiary crowd – and turning them into a shot you’ll want to keep forever. The Nikon 1 J1 with it’s super-light frame and ultra-fast shooting speed, is perfect for this – letting you get right up close to the action without having to lug around any heavy gear.
