Leading live music photographer Christie Goodwin has been immortalizing the performances of some of the world’s biggest music acts for a decade and a half. 

It would probably be easier to list the artists that Christie hasn’t captured on stage, rather than the ones she has, but it’s a roster that includes legends like Paul McCartney, Celine Dion, Jeff Beck, Kylie Minogue and Nick Cave – alongside wildly popular younger megastars like Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry, Olly Murs and more.

Niall is the editor of Digital Camera Magazine, and has been shooting on interchangeable lens cameras for over 20 years, and on various point-and-shoot models for years before that. 

Working alongside professional photographers for many years as a jobbing journalist gave Niall the curiosity to also start working on the other side of the lens. These days his favored shooting subjects include wildlife, travel and street photography, and he also enjoys dabbling with studio still life. 

On the site you will see him writing photographer profiles, asking questions for Q&As and interviews, reporting on the latest and most noteworthy photography competitions, and sharing his knowledge on website building.
