I’d like to be a photographer for bands and live performances, and I was wondering what the best equipment is for this type of photography and how to start getting in to this?
At most music venues a mounted flash is a BIG no no!!This is something that got me more into photography decades ago back in the days of film
Anyway, camera... anything, a "normal" lens (a 28, 35 or 50mm or equivalent f1.8 or f1.4 prime or a standard range f2.8 zoom) and a mounted flash so that you'll do better than I ever did.
So I'm not the only Fuji user in the pit!Fuji X-T3 is my camera, and the most used lens for live gig work is my trusty little 35mm f/1.4 - great for low-light shooting. I also use the 50-140 f/2.8 a lot for closer shots of individual band members.
As for getting started, there are plenty of free gigs so experiment with settings, angles and your lenses until you see what works for you.
