Advice from Pro Music Photographers please
Jul 28, 2010

Hi,

Im getting into Music Photography and have built up a decent portfolio of work.

Through a friend I have made contact with some concert organizers and have access to the email addresses of the relavent pr people for the bands performing at there gigs.

My main question is this really, who commissions you when it come to shooting gigs? Do the PR people just sort you a photo pass and then you have to get them published yourself or would you be paid by the bands people who license your pics for their own promotion?

Id be very grateful for any advice, I dont want to appear a total novice when getting in touch with these people. I mean, Id probably work for free for the experience but dont want to be taken advantage of because I believe im good enough to get paid for my work.

Thanks in advance

Gary
