Are You Houston's Best Music Photographer?

One of the best parts of running Rocks Off is going through all the concert photos we run every week. We're proud to say we feature the work of Houston's finest music photographers on this blog, but now we're upping the ante by putting that to a vote. In other words, think you can do better?

For the first time, we're going to let our readers determine Houston's best music photographer. (Not us; we just work here.) But entering is super-simple: Make sure you have a portfolio of 15-20 concert pictures you'd like to enter (a mixture of artist and crowd shots is best), and either write your name and email in the comments area of this blog post or email it to music@houstonpress.com.

That's about it. We will forward the entries to the three people who have graciously agreed to act as screeners -- former Houston Press photographer Mark C. Austin, who took the lovely picture of St. Vincent you see above; Ky Meyer, producer and music maven for Channel 39's Newsfix; and Richard Carson, a former Houston Chronicle photographer now on the University of Houston faculty. They'll narrow the entries down to a field of a dozen or so finalists, at which point Rocks Off will take back over by featuring each one, then allowing our readers to pick a winner.

Sounds simple, right? Should be fun. The deadline to enter is this Friday, February 28, at 5 p.m. Good luck!

Why even have a competition? It's kind of a slap in the face to the several great photographers that work their ass off day in and day out for HP. You should already think you have the best in the game. Why try to prove otherwise?

It's already becoming a popularity contest. The contest should be "Are you Houston's best music photographer with the most Facebook, Twitter and Instagram followers?"
