Photographers and Videographers Documenting Independent Artists in Charleston, SC

In recent years, visual coverage of music has become an increasingly vital aspect in the music industry, and that has become particularly evident in the local music scene here in Charleston, SC.

Visual art and coverage of live music, documentaries, podcasts and music videos have become powerful mediums that bridge the gap between the listener and the artist in independent music scenes. Whether it’s a photograph capturing an artist’s raw emotion on stage or a music video bringing their story to life, these visuals add a whole new dimension to the music.

That’s why for this post, we’ve decided to go through our entire rolodex of Charleston, SC photographers and videographers and list them out here as one giant resource for artists and fans alike.

We have created an expansive list of photographers and videographers who contribute immensely to the growth in visual coverage of music in Charleston. Names and Instagram links are below, follow and enjoy!
