And The Rock Photographer Of The Year Is….


Great photographs are not taken, they are made.

A singer belts out notes as powerful as the rays behind him… A drummer’s glare shows how intensely he hits the snare… A fan’s passion for music highlighted amidst a sea of phones… Gerard Garcia, the winner of The Rock Photography Of The Year Competition tells us the story of music with his photographs.

Gerard Garcia’s exceptional images were extremely difficult to miss among more than 600 entries this year.

Gerard’s entries capture the right moments with creatively thought out angles. His images highlight the subject by bringing the necessary visual elements in one image. His framing, use of environment, light and his treatment in all his entries make already intense moments #ExtraStrong.
