Name: Kane Hibberd

Biography: Kane has over a decade of experience working in the music industry, and in this time completed a Bachelor of Photography at RMIT University in 2008. His work and his website, The Art Of Capture, has quickly gained the attention of the international music community. In 2010, Hibberd was recognised as one of the leading rock photographers in the world by British music magazine NME. Hibberd was announced as the second place-getter in the rock bible's first annual Music Photography Awards.

Hibberd regularly shoots commissioned work for music publications such as Rolling Stone, Jmag, Blunt, The Drum Media, Inpress and Time Off, with his work often appearing on the covers of these publications. Hibberd's busy schedule has led him to work with a diverse array of top international and Australian artists such as Sneaky Sound System, The Cat Empire, The Living End, Fallout Boy, Peaches, The xx, Mess Hall, Them Crooked Vultures and Wolfmother. His services are in demand around the country with clients that include EMI/Virgin Music, Universal Music, Eleven, Liberation, Sony, Street Press Australia and ACP.

Hibberd is also the official tour photographer for Soundwave Festival (2008-10), Pyramid Rock Festival (2008, 2009) and the Melbourne leg of Laneway Festival (2010).

Awards

Runner up, NME Music Photography Awards (2010).

Artistic statement

When I'm documenting a live performance, backstage or a creative process I'm really just looking for moments that define the event. I only need to come away with one shot to be successful.

When I'm photographing a portrait, if possible, I like to try and portray the artist in a different light. Take them out of their comfort zone and try to give the viewer a previously unknown insight into the artist.
