Bert Queiroz is a musician and photographer from Brooklyn. His hometown, Washington, DC was his first inspiration for beginning photography, where he shot skateboarders and infiltrated himself into the hardcore and punk scene. As a way of documenting this music scene for himself and his friends, he began photographing live shows, something he continues doing today. Some bands he has captured include Queen, the Dickies, Dag Nasty, Fugazi, Rites of Spring, Bad Brains, Embrace, Gray Matter, Sink, Wire, K-Line, The Petrol Emotion, Burnside Project, One Last Wish, Kiss, Bardo Pond, Jawbox, Beefeater, and others. He has also found an interest in photographing travel. He says, “Simply put, photography gives me an excuse to travel and traveling gives me an excuse to take photographs.”
Bert’s work has been featured in publications like Spin, NME, Melody Maker, Our Band Could Be Your Life, Gred, Dance of Days, Banned in DC, DC City Paper, Guitar Player, Uno Mas, and Fodor’s Rock & Roll Traveler Guide.
