My name is Lisa A. Walker, and I was born a music lover.
It began when I was a toddler, watching and mimicking my Dad on the piano. Playing instruments through grade school and high school. Camping out for Bruce Springsteen tickets as a young teenager, and then attending just about every live show I could — and then some.
Even today, I continue to seek out live music. And now that I work as a staffer at National Geographic and have developed a real passion for photography, it only seems logical to try and combine the two.
So here’s my concert photography in the making. Shots from the dark. And some from the light. And quite possibly a few other observations while I am behind the lens.

“Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy. Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents.” – Ludwig van Beethoven
“…Surrender your whole being into a note, and gravity disappears … with one chord, John Lee Hooker could tell you a story as deep as the ocean…” – Carlos Santana
“Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” -Berthold Auerbach
“Music is my religion” – Jimi Hendrix
