Wonderful Woman – Lori Coremin

Q&A with Lori:

Q: What do you do?

A: I am the owner & photographer of my own business, War Child Photography.

Q: How did you get into the business you are in today?

A: I started taking photos back in 2001 at local shows that my friend and I would host at our high school when I was 14.  Granted, I’ve been taking photos of other things since I received my first camera for my 9th birthday.

Q: What is the biggest challenge you have faced & overcame?

A: Climbing to the top in a very over-populated and male-dominated industry, especially in the NY Metro area.  Just in general, being a concert photographer as a woman has been a challenge in itself, especially in the heavy metal/hard rock scene.  This is a heavy male-saturated industry, but I will say that I’ve noticed more women with me in the photo pit at shows lately.  It wasn’t until late 2016 that I really broke the norm of shooting local shows and started getting in with national artists.

Q: What is your work moto?

A: Metalheads do it harder.

Q: What is the best advice to give someone who is interested in photography?

A: Never stop shooting!  Bring your camera with you everywhere, because you never know what you may see.

Q: What do you like most about this industry?

A: All the amazing like-minded people that I’ve met, both photographers and musicians.

Q: What would you want to tell your 15-year-old self?

A: Keep going strong and never give up!

Q: What does girl power mean to you?

A: Women can do anything and we don’t have to prove ourselves to anyone. We need to keep each other empowered and stop knocking each other down.

Q: Anything else you want to add?

A: To all the women that want to break through in the music industry, keep strong.
