This morning, Abbey Road Studios in London, UK hosted an Amplify Music Photography Panel that included some very special guests. Hosted by former NME picture editor, Marian Paterson, the studio opened its doors to budding music fans, with a panel comprising of legendary music photographer Jill Furmanovsky, as well as Anaïs Gallagher, Isha Shah, Vicky Grout, and Joe Puxley.

Live-streamed on Youtube, the Amplify Music Photography Panel welcomed questions from both online and in-person spectators and discussed everything from shooting live shows to the importance of shoot preparation, using social media as a marketplace, and how fashion and music photography are beginning to blur lines.
