Front Row Focus | Award-winning Photography


The founder of Front Row Focus, music photographer David Simchock, is no stranger to “the photo pit”, and he has the credentials, the résumé and the accolades to go with it.   He is the proud double-winner of the 2013 Independent Music Awards (both judges and public vote) in the Concert Photography category.  David had two images nominated for award in the 2014 IMAs, when he took top honors in the judges' voting. David also took the top IMA judges' award once again in 2015.

David’s music photography has been published in several music publications around the country (and beyond), and he has covered concerts and festivals ranging from Roger Waters – The Wall to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival to countless gigs at Asheville, NC’s most popular music club, The Orange Peel.  He is also a staff / volunteer photographer for the local non-profit organization, LEAF, and covers their popular music and arts festival twice per year.

David is an established photography instructor and fine artist, and brings all of his creative skills to every event that he shoots.  As Front Row Focus grows, we will be bringing photogs of similar pedigree into the fold, establishing Front Row Focus as the place for world-class music photography – up close and personal, of course!
