Shane McCauley has been taking amazing photos for a while now, despite calling himself a "professional instagrammer." His latest music photography work had him traveling around the world with Diplo, accompanying him on amazing adventures that were compiled in the book 128 Beats Per Minute: Diplo's Visual Guide to Music, Culture, and Everything in Between, which came out last March. He most recently completed Blow Your Head Vol. 1. Dancehall with Diplo, which is a zine documenting music cultures around the world. Despite being based in NYC, Shane's one of a few music photographers on this list who's been able to capture live music in different parts of the world, and he does so very well.
