Been asked to shoot Guns N Roses in Dublin in two weeks. The thought of it is making me a bit nervous, biggest band I'll of shot by a long way and just seems quite daunting shooting a band of that size for a magazine. Keep getting paranoid the photos will turn out shite
Shit man, that's awesome. You'll be fine, your work is damn good, you always come out with brilliant stuff. Just try look at it like it's just another band maybe?
Oh, I have a question by the way, do you ever encounter the three song rule?
YOU CAN DO IT YOU'RE AWESOME.
I will do when the time comes, just making myself paranoid for some reason atm
The three song rule is standard for any gig other than local bands really. When I'm going in to a gig and getting my pass there is usually the brief conversation of "3 song no flash?" "yep" or "3 song flash?" "yep" After shooting a tonne of gigs I can usually tell what kind of band allow flash and what bands don't, but I always double check just in case.
Sometimes you get bands than hand you contracts to sign saying they own the rights to any photo you take at their gig cause it's their gig.. usually with them I just do a scribble rather than a signature, like fuck they are claiming ownership of my work and dictating where I upload it . Probably shouldn't do it, but oh well
