Episode 6: Austin-Based Music Photographer Chad Wadsworth

We talk with music photographer Chad Wadsworth about how he photographs in and around festivals, concerts and music shows big and small. Based in Austin, Texas, Chad has a front row seat and backstage pass to one of the most vibrant and diverse music scenes in the world. From massive festivals like South By Southwest to intimate clubs where the rich guitar improvisations of Texas blues spill out onto the street, Chad photographs them all. After not taking no for an answer when he pitched a local radio station to photograph a concert, Chad’s photos spoke for themselves and he hasn't looked back.

In Tech Talk, Mark Weir joins us to cut through the confusion and misunderstandings about Hybrid Autofocus technology and to explain the advantages of Sony Hybrid Autofocus systems for photographers. 

For our Do This Now segment, Chad Wadsworth returns with his number one tip for anyone who photographs concerts and music festivals.
