My name is Niko Auer

and I love music and photography. I played trumpet and saxophone in various bands and orchestras for more than twenty years. Now I’m a music photographer specializing in concert and lifestyle photography. If it rocks, I shoot it.

Photography is my passion. I always try to capture those unique moments, the photos that fans love to see of their favorite bands. Whether the venue is a smaller club or a huge stadium, I want my photos to put you in the front of the stage. Most of my live photos were created in cooperation with and !ticket Magazine.

Due to some artist's contract limitations I am not allowed to show all photos on my website.

I photographed the live performance of artists like Guns N' Roses, Coldplay, Depeche Mode, The Rolling Stones, Deep Purple, Kiss, Aerosmith, Green Day, Elton John, Placebo, Foreigner, Justin Bieber, Linkin Park, Blink-182 and many more.

I provide high quality, professional images and for promotional and editorial use, covers, merchandise licensing, for established and unsigned artists and bands. Get in touch with me to discuss creative ideas, plan your shoot and get an affordable quote, personalised to your individual needs.
