Hey! I’m Ryan and I’m a photographer and writer/editor for musicmattersmagazine.com. I’m Kentucky born and raised in a small town called Mackville. At 26 years old, I’ve been shooting shows professionally for 4 years now for various different outlets all over Kentucky until we launched Music Matters. Music is my passion, capturing the emotion and sharing the story with the world is my goal. Music matters, that’s why we do what we do. It was a Jason Michael Carroll concert with a Kodak point and shoot, taking pictures without any thought and it created a passion that can’t be stopped. Feel free to follow my facebook page at Ryan Keith Photography.
Greetings fellow music lovers! Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Amanda, you’re neighborhood old soul. I am an avid music fan, devoted to classic rock. However, I can also be found spending time with dance/techno, funk/soul and pop radio. While I’m not a big fan of country or bluegrass; I won’t tell you to hang up your cowboy hat. I remain open to hearing new artists and exploring the ones we already know. Apart from my undying passion for music, my other great romance is cooking. And no, I don’t mean opening a box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese though it is my guilty pleasure. I live and work in Wheelersburg, Ohio and have two spoiled, needy Persian cats. With love to fans everywhere, rock on. Please feel free to follow me on twitter @amandajill82

Hi I’m Kaitlyn Johnston. I’m a freelance photographer, specializing in event & concert photography. I am based out of the Chicagoland & Milwaukee area. My love for photography began when I was 8 years old when my Father began teaching me how to use his camera and photography has been my passion ever since! I’ve been working professionally as a second shooter, wedding, portrait, event and concert photographer since 2010!
I am a second generation photographer currently working on completing my Bachelor’s Degree at Middle Tennessee State. I have been a working photographer for the last 25 years and have found that working in the music industry provides me a personal pleasure that I hope translates well into my photography. Capturing the emotion and passion an artist puts into every part of their performance is my goal. My specialty is centered around the music industry including live music event photography and band publicity photography.
Hi guys! I’m Tanise, a music photographer and writer. I have photographed red carpet events in Los Angeles and attended the APMAs in Cleveland. . I have a diverse taste in music, especially rap, pop, rock and country. I started out as just your average fan. As a teenager I knew I was going to be a hard core rock lover, especially once I laid eyes on Sebastian Bach and his gorgeous blue eyes (my first rock crush!) and I heard Skid Row’s 18 and life. I was instantly hooked. While I love attending shows– feeling the energy of the crowd, the wailing of the guitars and the heaviness of the bass, there’s nothing better than photographing an artist that you’re also a fan of and capturing them in their element. It’s pure awesomeness. When an artist or client appreciates my work that is the best feeling in the world. I’ve been to hundreds of concerts and met many musicians, actors/actresses and celebrities. One of my nieces says I’m a “celebrity magnet” because I meet so many famous people when I’m on vacation. I can’t explain it, and of course, she’s right, but I’ll never admit it. On a personal level, my personal motto is “If it’s fun, I wanna try it”. I love to travel, and enjoy cooking, but admit that I pretty much order take out most days. A lot. Looking for a good place to eat? Check my Instagram. And if you’re wondering, yes, I photograph my food before I eat (stop chanting “Eat it, don’t Tweet it!”). It’s what I do. I am the mommy to a Yorkie named Jae and two Pomeranian siblings, Bacardi and Daiquiri. Volunteering and spending time with family and friends are two things that hold a special place in my heart. One of the hardest questions that people ask me is who my favorite person that I’ve met is(stay tuned), and the easiest is who my favorite band is. Easy. It’s Papa Roach and as much as I like rock, I still do, and always will scream like an old school Beatles fan for NKOTB.

Hi, my name is Dominique and I like to refer to myself as a “rocktographer.” I’m from a city about 45 minutes north of Boston, MA. Most weekends you can catch me at a show whether it be photographing a local band or a nationally touring band; I love it all. I first picked up a camera in 1997 at the age of 12 when my parents bought me a 35mm for my birthday. It was meant to be!
I didn’t do much photography while I was in the Navy for ten years, but I picked it back up as soon as I moved back home. I love the thrill of a concert and seeing the fans get excited to see their favorite musicians. I also love that I sometimes get to shoot bands that I’m a fan of!
