1120 Studios – Concert, Fine Art, Model
Keith Perks is a photographer based out of Northeastern Pennsylvania that specializes in concert, fine art, and model photography.
He is most passionate about concert photography and has photographed bands such as The Melvins, Flogging Molly, Avett Brothers, Weezer, Slayer, Anthrax, Megadeth, and hundreds of others. He’s also photographed XPoNential Music Festival, Warped Tour, Peach Music Fest, and Camp Bisco multiple times, along with other major music festivals both large and small.
As a lover of street photography (and food), he can often be found in the streets of NYC capturing candid moments, architecture, and the tiniest bits of what he considers the greatest city.
Do you have a good photo tip for us?
What we do is a responsibility. Care for your subjects authentically and also, take time to connect and learn to listen. There are great stories behind the moments we capture.
Share some of that insight. It helps connect the viewer on a more emotional level and they’ll have a greater appreciation for your art and hard work.
Is there a stand out experience you can share with us?
There are so many great experiences that I have for a variety of reasons, so it’s very difficult to narrow it down, but the excitement of being in the photo pit with your favorite band in front of you and thousands of people behind you is amazing. Being caught in the middle of that energy is like no other.
