Noize is a site focused on visual journalism, opinion pieces, popular culture and general shenanigans that showcase a path to modern enlightenment. We’ve grown from a typical “music blog” that focused on showcasing music, concert photography and documentary photography, and are taking it up a notch. We also aim to celebrate self-expression and the power of the written word especially when paired with striking imagery. The name “Noize” originally came to be because of the noise music makes and the noise found in low-light photography, but now we’d just like to shake things up:) Our Mascot/logo is a Cockatoo because we own one, and she’s f’in loud.
Interested in contributing? We are on the look out for artists and writers that have their own perspective.
In a band and want to get your music out? We do band photos, pr, branding/marketing and website development too.
News tips? We like those too!
