I have been shooting concerts for about 4 years but lately have been feeling like I've 'plateued' in achieving the great results I wanted. Since I am of the belief that one should never stop learning or growing, I decided it was finally time to make the investment in my craft. Also, I have been a fan of Igor's work for a few years now and figured if I'm going to learn something, why not learn from one of the best active concert photographers out there today!? We have only completed one class thus far but I am glad I made this choice! Thank you for your patience in taking the time to thoroughly explain things to me. You are a GREAT teacher and I am excited to see what the next 2 sessions will have in store!

Lesson 3 with Igor is over! Even though there is no lesson 4 it had me wanting more. Anyone that is willing to spend the kind of money they do on an SLR camera needs to truly learn how to use their camera. Not only learn their camera, but we all want to improve our shots. To know what to look for, know our settings for maximum quality results. It doesn't end there. To learn the editing technique is the final step for a professional image, a work of art. With Igor's jam packed lessons you will have all the tools to become a professional photographer. Don't be like me and delay as I only wish I knew what I know now when I started. Igor's photography is a true work of art and it was an honour to learn his methods.

I have been shooting concerts for 15 years and always am willing to learn more to continue to improve
When I see a great photographer such as Igor I am interested in learning and discussing his technique
I feel I have a great understanding and often wonder if these classes are worth the money
I expected I would pick up an tip or two however Igor opened my eyes to several ideas and shared a different perspective
I love stepping out of my comfort zone and also having some of my approach confirmed
Spend the money it's well worth your time

As a photographer I appreciate it when I see something above the norm in images and I definitely see that in Igor's concert images. He has a special talent that puts him above the rest and has the ability to combine art and photography which you definitely notice in looking at all of his images. I signed up for his 3 Skype lessons and really appreciate his willingness to share his talents. Not only have I learned more about camera setup but learning his Lightroom techniques has been a plus. If you want to know more about concert photography Igor is your man and it will be a worthwhile investment.

Fast forward 6 months since my final class with Igor... Whoaaa...What an incredible experience it has been. I look at my prior statement stating I was hoping to shoot along side him in the pit. Not only have I had the good fortune of photographing side by side with him on a few occasions, I got to shoot in major venues, for bands that I never anticipated I could photograph. I have been approached by a few bands for promotional use of my images and garnished a DVD cover as well as a few images used as part of an endorsement deal. Considering it's a tough market to penetrate, especially in the city of Toronto, I have done fairly well for myself. My box of photo passes is quickly filling up! It was easily the best investment I have made. And not only did I improve my photography, but I've gained a true friend and mentor. Thanks Igor for sharing your knowledge and talents! I'm proud to say I'm part of the Igor "RockXposure" alumni.

Have you ever wanted your concert photos to stand out from the crowd? Look no further. Igor takes the time to patiently walk you through the process from beginning to end. Not only do you get to talk through all the challenges concert photography has to offer, you also will learn all about equipment requirements and settings depending on the lighting and size of the venue. The second session you will learn some great tips and tricks to use in Lightroom and witness real time editing where you can learn all about enhancements you can apply to your image that will result in a BIG impact. Igor has a wonderful teaching manner and pace. He patiently takes the time to make sure you have a full understanding before moving on.

If you are interested in concert photography, do yourself a favor and invest in your future! I can’t think of a better way to start. Check it out!

I bit the bullet after following Igor for a period of 4 months. I knew I had potential and just couldn't get beyond a certain point. When I finally reached out to Igor he was very kind and told me that he could definitely help me improve. In all honesty I was a little leary as to what he could possibly teach me that I already didn't know. Although I was certainly open to the possibilities. After the first session I was floored at the little tricks and tips. I was on cloud nine knowing that I would certainly be able to improve my images. After the first show I did I was amazed at the dramatic improvement of my images. It fueled my excitement and I looked forward to the 2nd and 3rd session. Those two session where just as invigorating as the first. He is able to help you reduce your workflow time and that was something I struggled with in the past. The new tools that I've been given by Igor are worth 1000 times the value of his classes. I am proud to say Igor Vidyashev taught me. Hoping to see him one day at my side in the pit!

I would LOVE to introduce you to my good friend and AMAZING music photographer from Toronto – Igor RockXposure Vidyashev. I've known Igor's work for a while, met him at the NAMM trade show and we had a great time hanging out together at Monsters of Rock cruise. Let alone is Igor a GREAT photographer but he also teaches concert photography classes locally and remotely via Internet.
If there are any aspiring "rock photographers" out there who want to "sharpen their skills" or learn some "new tricks", Igor is the one to talk to!!!!!
If any of you bands are passing through Toronto and want photos by one of the best photographers in the world, Igor is the "MAN"!!!!!
You can check out his work here: www.rockxposure.com
