16 June 2020 | Music Comp

In today’s super digital world, often one of the first impressions your audience will get will be your Press Shot, so it’s really important to make sure it represents you as an artist and is authentic to your style.

As such, we are so stoked to announce the latest prize giveaway, as we continue to party for our Comp’s 30th Birthday; an exclusive photo shoot package with renowned Australian Music Photographer, Ian Laidlaw.

Since he started out photographing bands in 2003, Laidlaw’s portfolio has grown to feature Australian and Global music royalty. Having proved himself as an official photographer for some of Australia’s biggest touring festivals including Splendour, Falls, Yours & Owls, Download and Laneway, Laidlaw’s images have been published around the world including Rolling Stone, NME and the music to name a few.

Ian has toured nationally with the likes of Hockey Dad, The Smith Street Band, Glass Animals and Celine Dion; he held the position of Head Photographer at Beat Magazine for a number of years and has a portfolio of artists like you would not believe.

Laidlaw will work with the one talented recipient to plan the photo shoot that will bring out their true essence, either in a studio or at an on-site location in Melbourne. The package includes a full day shoot plus an accommodation and travel subsidy to get you to Melbourne for the shoot.
