Best Of 2012 Concert Photos By Kate Cordova

As 2012 comes to an end Buzznet is asking all of the concert photographers to share their Top 10 Favorite photos of the year! This year I’ve had the honor of shooting some pretty awesome shows and many of my favorite bands. I’m so blessed to work for this wonderful site and continue to help out with photography whenever needed.


1. What was your favorite show to shoot for Buzznet this year?

Coachella was PRETTY EPIC! Buzznet’s music gal Sara Scoggins and I headed out to the weekend long festival and enjoyed all things Coachella. I knew a lot of the Buzznet photo community would be anxiously awaiting our coverage so I made sure to capture Buzznet’s favorite bands.

2. Any great moments you can share?

One of the greatest moments this year was shooting one of my favorite bands Mumford & Sons. I never thought I’d see the day where I could shoot this band live and I finally got to at South By South West. I traveled all by myself from downtown Austin, Texas to The Universtiy Of Texas to see Mumford in a crowd full of thousands of people. Truely a magical night.

3. What is your favorite photo and why from this year?

It’s really hard to pick a favorite photo.. all of them are so special to me for many different reasons. I really love this photo I took recently of John O’Callaghan from The Maine on their Fall 2012 tour. Something about the background lighting and the way he’s positioned singing into the mic. It’s just pretty to look at.


4. What band’s live set were you surprised by this year?

Coldplay was absolutely breath taking. The world stood still as I watched their set. Nothing else mattered but the music. Heart felt.


5. Who are you dying to shoot in 2013?

If the rumors are true about Fall Out Boy getting back together in 2013. Then yes, I’d like to snap photos of FOB.
