I recently asked someone for advice about how to go about getting taken on as a freelance concert photographer for various publications. The answer was, like most good answers, simple. Essentially it was: "Go shoot some concerts and then show your photos to places." I was like "...oh, nice. Yeah. That makes sense."
Last week I decided to start the trek down this road and reached out to a band called The Family Crest, who was playing a show at a venue called Schuba's, to see if I could get permission to photograph them. Within like...10 minutes they gave me the green light. And, once again, I was like "...Oh....so, okay. You just have to do things."
So I went to the show (which was great), took a lot of pictures (which were pretty good?!), and am now posting this!
This isn't really a blog post in the same spirt of blogs that feature things like: "Here's what happened at the show in excruciating detail! So many memories! What a night to remember!"
But just a small anecdote and a reminder that...if you want to do something...just ask? I guess? And maybe it'll all be chill? It'll probably all be chill.
Anyway! Here are some photos!
