intotheunkn0wn asked: hi nicole, i'd love to get started in concert photography but i'm not sure how to go about it. how strict are venues like webster hall, bowery ballroom, irving plaza and gramercy theater with their camera policies? i'd love to bring my camera into shows but don't want it getting taken away since I don't have a press or photo pass. thank you!
Hey! The best way to get started with music photography would be to find find a music site that you can shoot for. Most venues require a photo pass (issued by the venue/band) to get your camera in, but I know there’s a few in NYC that you don’t need a pass for. Bowery Ballroom is one. At Gramercy and Irving you’ll need a photo pass.
