My name is Niko Auer, and I love music. I have played trumpet and saxophone in various bands and orchestras for twenty years. Now I’m a music photographer specializing in concert and lifesyle photography. If it rocks, I shoot it. 

I’m obsessed with nailing those concert moments, the photos that fans love to see of their favorite bands. Whether the venue is a smaller club or a huge stadium, shooting for major brands or on tour, I want my photos to put you in the front row. Most of my live photos were created in cooperation with and !ticket Magazine.

I photographed artists like Depeche Mode, Deep Purple, Kiss, Aerosmith, Elton John, Placebo, Justin Bieber, 3 Doors Down, Avenged Sevenfold and many more at their live performances. 

I am available for assignment or commission in Austria and around the world.
