My name is Alex Kluft and I am a graduate of Columbia College Chicago (2014) . I feel that both music and photography represent a large part of what defines me. At the age of 12 I started playing drums. At 14 years old I started going to concerts. As a photographer and avid concert attendee, I decided to put the 2 together when I started bringing a pocket camera to shows. After taking a few pictures at different shows/concerts I decided that I wanted to pursue concert photography. Before long, I bought a professional DSLR camera. By photographing small club shows, I was able to meet several great musicians who play with some of my favorite artists and bands. My photos show who I am. They also show whom I interact with and what kind of music I like. In addition it shows my creative side. The reason why I like concert photography is that it allows me to "capture the moment” for myself and others.
