Alright, so one of the things I really enjoy doing is taking pictures at concerts, but the majority of the time I have to be pretty stealthy b/c most of the shows I go to don't allow it. I'd like to be able to take pictures freely, and I realize that the only way to do that is to "work" for someone and have a press pass to the shows. I need experience though in order to even try getting some work, and I wanted to know what you guys thought of my plan, which is this: There are a few clubs around town that get medium size national acts weekly. Specifically this club, http://www.headlinerscolumbia.com/ If you look at their photo section, you can see that who ever takes pictures for them does a piss poor job. My idea was to contact them and ask them if we could work out a deal so that I could come in and take pictures of their bigger shows in return for the much needed practice and experience to help me land bigger things. All I'd ask for would be a free ticket in. I figured I'd first send them an email telling them who I was and what I'd like to do. I'd also send them a link to some pictures I took with my old camera. (seen here).....I've got a 20d now. So what do you guys think? Anyone with experience know what I should or shouldn't say that could help me out?
