Shoot The Show

Nikon recently launched a contest in search of the coolest concert photos and I thought we could have our own – just for Booooooom readers! With so many amazing photographers frequenting this site and so many awesome concerts going on I thought it would be a fun way to wrap up the summer!

So here is the Booooooom + Nikon “Shoot The Show” Contest.

Booooooom x Nikon Shoot The Show Contest


I want to see the most amazing concert photos you got, ones that really capture the energy and excitement of the show. Nikon was kind enough to hook me up with a COOLPIX P300 to give away to one of you, so please share your best work!

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”
