Josh Gibbs has an intuitive understanding of the connection between a performer’s music and their image. “Growing up, I always loved bands that look great. You’d see pictures of them long before you ever heard anything, and it made you want to listen to their music.”
After forming the band Pin Ups with brothers Louis and Jesse Baker, Josh thought hard about how to present the outfit visually. “We’re a new band, so it’s important to show people what we’re up to and why we’re worth following.”
He knew that being able to post great photos on social media was key to gaining a following, but wasn’t convinced he could achieve what he wanted using his phone. “I couldn’t focus right and it was always too dark or too light – especially when we were in dingy venues or recording studios,” he says.
For Josh, the solution was the Canon EOS 2000D – a DSLR camera that delivers good quality even in low light. Having never used a DSLR before, Josh was amazed by how easy to use the camera was, and by the sheer quality of the photos it took.
