Re: Miranda Lambert

Doug, did you have any issues with Miranda Lambert's photo approval? An associate of mine covered her concert here about a month ago. He submitted 25 pics for approval and she approved only 12. Of those, only 4 were shots of her (the rest were crowd shots or back up musicians). That same weekend I photographed Paula Cole and only had to deal with the standard "first three songs and be discrete" rule.

We've been having a lot of discussion of late as to how some performers have become such Prima Donnas they make it extremely difficult for photographers. I know there are some rude photographers who can spoil a show for paying audience members, but don't some of these performerd understand we are helping their careers by providing coverage of concerts for their fans?
If, in my lifetime, I will have produced just one image that makes a real difference in the life of another, I will have achieved my highest goal as a photographer.
