It has recently come to my attenshun that I like conseerts. I hope you all are ready because it’s time to
Actually, it’s not, but still – I LOVE oregs.
What I do want to talk to you all about is How YOU Can Become A Concert Photographer For Buzznet. Lately, we have had many an e mail asking us just how one can take concert photos for our neat little website. Since I like writing blogs with gifs in them all the time, I have decided to let you all know just what you need to do to be even more awesome than you already are.
Excited Pants: ON
Here are some simple guidelines that you must follow to be a Concert Photographer for Buzznet:
You need a Buzznet profile. Once you have that, upload some examples of your work. I am really lazy and I have a lot of tabs open to watch my stories and going to another site will make my computer slow.
Don’t make me open another TAB, unless it’s a soda.
Also, you need try to familiarize yourself with Buzznet. We don’t mind if you’re from somewhere else on the internet but we would like it if chillaxed with us here and got to know some of the people ’round these parts. Don’t be a stranger. Write some stuff. Let us know who you are. In other words, GET INVOLVED WITH OUR COMMUNITY.
You will need a professional camera. These are usally DSLR type cameras with a removable lens. You cannot come to us with a point and shoot. I mean, theyre cute and some take awesome photos but no, you need to stop.
Also, you don’t want to be this win nugget in a photog pit:
Trust us, it happens. Also, no iPhones or any other tablets. We get it but there are people working there and if that’s what you want to do, you need to just:
You will also need some form of reliable transportation to get to and from said show that you are trying to shoot. I have taken many a bus to the Troubadour and walked the vomit riddled streets of Hollywood in the wee hours of the morning just to shoot things.
Remember, this isn’t something that we pay people to. I know, it breaks my heart as well but Buzznet is not this giant site that has all this money to spend on things and I’m not going to get into that. What we do is try to get you into shows so that you can bulk up your portfolio and hone your photography skills.
There are few other things that you will need to know once you become a Concert Photographer for Buzznet but this is the gist of it. If this sounds like something you are interested in getting involved with, write me a message on Buzznet and then we can talk there for a bit before I give you magical e mail where we can exchange messages about things.
Until then, let me know if you have any other questions and I will do my best to answer them in the comments below. Happy posting!
