Concert photographer Patricio Luna is making waves in the industry as he becomes one of his generation’s most influential concert photographers.
Luna, who is also a digital creator and social media strategist, has collaborated with known music artists such as Leon Leiden, Zhu, Matoma, Colombian singer J Balvin, and Norwegian DJ and record producer Kygo.
Prior to becoming an acclaimed concert photographer and digital strategist, Luna began shooting small local shows before getting access to significant events.
“Concert photography has always been one of my top passions. It’s a combination of my love for music and photography,” explains Luna.
He says capturing a live show or a concert is such an exciting job, something that he is looking to come back big time in the wake of easing restrictions after more than a year of pandemic-induced lockdowns.
“Getting up there close and personal with a band or performer feels surreal. I get to feed off the energy of the crowd and take my creativity to the next level to get every shot perfect,” he adds.
Currently based in Mexico City, Luna has studied in Marketing in 2017 at Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey. After buying himself a camera, he began doing photography and began capturing the world.
Luna’s recent participation in the 2018 Mexican elections with Ricardo Anaya Cortés as a digital strategist earned him a shot to prominence, making him one of the youngest digital strategists in Mexico City.
“I always believe that creative work, determination, and some luck would propel you to where you want to be,” he said.
He has already worked with famous international artists in his photographic stint, including Nicky Jam, Ghetto Kids, Callie Reiff, Reykon, French Montana, Cash Cash, and many more.
His Instagram account @patolunaa currently has a whopping 28,000 followers, making him one of his generation’s most influential concert photographers and digital creators.
