Hello friends, let me introduce myself!
I’m Peter! Many of you probably know me as a Nebraska based wedding photographer (check out @peterbarnesandjelly for all of that fun stuff), but I cut my teeth on photography with shooting music!
I’ve been a performing musician for over a decade and have truly experienced the amazing community that local music has to offer. When photography entered my life it was only natural for me to shoot concerts.
Since then I’ve had the pleasure of photographing major artists like @lights, @memphismayfire, @blessthefall, @fouryearstrong, @counterpartsband, @realfriendsband and so many more.
But besides major artists I’ve been incredibly blessed to have met some truly amazing touring bands over my career. A lot of the people in these bands have become close friends and I cannot express my appreciation for them, their talent and their hustle in words.
Over the past year my photography business niched out to exclusively photographing weddings, but I still photograph concerts VERY frequently, and I’m starting this Instagram account as a new hub for all of the content that I was never posting on my main account.
So follow this account to see a TON more music photos, it’s been too long.
P.S. the other images in this list feature a couple of my FAVORITE bands that just finished touring together
