Why good press photos matter?

Having great artist profile pictures can sometimes be nearly as important as the quality of your music. On Low-Fi, your photos are the first thing the host, concert goers and possible new collaborators come across. It gives the audience a first impression, right before they click the play button. You do not want a blurry picture from the back of a concert you played six years ago to represent who you are as an artist.
This is the top three reasons you’ll want to consider improving your artist photos
1. Pro Photos = Pro Musician
Having professionally shot photos shows professionalism. That first impression will also translate to how your audience perceives you. Excellent pictures show you are serious about your craft and understand the value of marketing yourself.
2. Standing out
Having quality photos on your social media pages, as well as Low-Fi, makes it easier to stand out.
Use your visual identity creatively. You have an opportunity to express your style. Let the pictures be an extension of your artistry. The internet is so saturated with images – To make the cut;Make sure yours are better and more interesting than average
3. Concert Pictures
Good quality pictures of a live performance are exceptional! It makes it easier for a client or host to see you in action. That will make it easier to see if your style matches their event or home.
Also, it’s often comforting to see that you’ve played a professional gig before booking your act…
The first step
The first step in getting a better visual impression is hiring a photographer. It can be a professional photographer who really knows what they’re doing. You could also do a bit of research. It is also possible to find an upcoming semi-professional photographer in your area that could improve your visual identity significantly.
