The letter above appears in this week’s Drum Media. Apologies for the crappy picture, i just snapped it quickly on my phone.
Despite being a concert snapper myself, i wholeheartedly agree with everything this punter says. It makes me so irate when i see other photographers do stupid stuff like point their external flash backwards into the faces of the crowd and snap away continuously at the action on stage.
There is an etiquette to concert photography and those photographers who are so arrogant or so unaware of the annoyance they’re causing give us all a bad name.
