Lindsey Best Photography

Agoura Hills, CA, USA
I'm a photographer currently based in Los Angeles with vast experience in shooting music and music journalism. In addition to music photography I'm also heavily focused on story telling through creating narrative and concept based images.

Photography for me is about being able to explore and express a connection or passion through the creation of an image-- whether that be with a subject or with a narrative or an idea.

Client list includes: Premier Guitar, Pitchfork Media, Rolling Stone, AOL Music, Spinner, The Huffington Post, Time Out, Live Nation, Bill Silva Presents & the Hollywood Bowl, The Skirball Cultural Center, Mark Z. Danielewski, RedCat, Crawdaddy!, Spex Magazine, Les Inrockuptibles, Brooklyn Vegan, OC Weekly, LA Weekly, Village Voice Media, AMG Ltd., Rusnak Auto, Selvin Properties, and more.

Most of my images are available to purchase as fine art prints. If you're interested in either hiring me, licensing an image, or purchasing a print, please contact me.
