• Tips for Press Photos

    Sarge_jokersPAYattention Say “CHEEEEESE!” – If you happen to notice someone with a camera running around the venue during your set snapping photos, there are a few things you should keep in-mind to make sure the photos of you and your band don’t come out looking like blurry and out-of-focus blobs. 

    1. When performing, be sure to ‘pose for the press’ during your first few songs. Members of the press are usually only granted a limited time to get good photos from the restricted area near the stage. Make this time work for you.

    Sarge Tip

    Try not to jump around too much or get too sweaty before the photographer is done snapping shots of you.

    2. Try to introduce yourself to all photographers whom you see take your band’s picture. Get the link to the website where the pictures will be posted so that you can use it for your portfolio.

     

    3. Ensure all photo’s you release to be used in flyers and posters are high-resolution and large in size. (500-800 pixels)
