Paul Miles is an Australian freelance rock photographer specialising in live music photography, who captures the true spirit of rock'n'roll in action by many of the world's greatest performers.
Since 2009, he has shot a vast array of rock music photography: from gigs in world-famous clubs like the Apollo in Harlem and the Whisky a Go Go in Hollywood, to iconic arenas like New York City's Madison Square Garden and Australia's MCG, as well as retail stores Barnes & Noble, Apple, and John Varvatos CBGBs.
He has covered rock shows on assignment from Brooklyn to Bangalore, Paris to Las Vegas, Tokyo to Los Angeles, including street concerts in Melbourne's AC/DC Lane and Manhattan's Times Square. Paul's photos have been published in online media like Time Out Beijing and in print magazines like Germany's Rock Hard, and a book of his backstage rock photography in New York City called Before I Hit the Stage has been published.
