Please join us for an evening with Leica shooter Gary Copeland. Gary is a professional photographer based in Los Angeles, CA. You’ve probably already seen some of his photos, as he has worked with iconic companies like Oakley, Converse, and Arnette Sunglases, just to name a few.

Gary also covers the contemporary music scene, often times documenting events like the South by Southwest Music Festival, among others. Many of his images, all with Leicas are shot for various recording companies. Lately however, Gary has turned to a more personal project : documenting the backstage life of his friends in the metal band Valient Thorr.

Gary will share his photos with us and talk about how Leica fits in so well with his style of shooting.

Gary Copeland : On Shooting Just For Myself

Camera West friend and super talented commercial photographer Gary Copeland’s specialty is covering the contemporary music scene. This includes on-stage performances, individual performers, the backstage world of musicians, and events like the South by Southwest Music Festival. Many of his images, all with Leicas are shot for various recording companies such as the Volcom Entertainment record label. Lately however, Copeland has turned to a more personal project : documenting the backstage life of a band that includes some of his closest friends.

He sat down recently with The Leica Camera Blog, revealing thoughts on this personal project, what it brought up for him, and what he does and doesn’t know about his own creative process.

Gary will show his work and talk about it at an upcoming presentation here at Camera West in Walnut Creek. Stay tuned to this blog for more details.
