Wanna be a photographer? Learn some respect first

Posted By on Mon, Mar 20, 2017 at 4:00 PM

Why are there so many “photographers” at every event and concert in this city? We all know the trend of today—everyone and their dog is a photographer now but why do we need 10 amateurs with a DSLR walking around a stage like they own it? They are not respecting the performance or the audience; they wear distracting clothes and actually talk to their fellow-photographer friends throughout the show!  This has been my experience attending events ranging from intimate theatre concerts to public shows at Grand Parade Square to so many other music and art venues around the city.

What happened to quality over quantity? I do see the attraction for promoters to give a press-pass to a bunch of millennials with a huge Instagram following but Halifax, show some respect to the people who paid and showed up to enjoy the show. —doitfortheart
