#MakeBeautiful: Peter Ellenby

Music photographer Peter Ellenby has snapped everyone from Bright Eyes to James Brown, and all of his photos have one thing in common: they capture the music. He shoots with spirit, with joie de vivre, with passion, and it shows.

Why does he #MakeBeautiful? “I don’t know how to live any other way.”

What am I doing to make beautiful? I’m merging my love of music and photography. Nothing inspires me more (besides my wife and daughter) than the beauty of music. It gets into your heart and soul bringing all sorts of emotions to the surface. The fact that I’m able to get into such close quarters with the people who create such a driving force in my life blows me away. The photographs that I make of them are a reminder and record of their contributions to my life and to everybody who listens to them.

Why do I make beautiful? I don’t know how to live any other way.
