It has been a while since we had a DPS community workshop – so today when I got the following question via email from Brett (a reader of DPS) I thought I’d post it here as a question for everyone to answer. If you have any tips for Band Promotion Photos leave your comments below. Here’s Brett’s question:
“My brother is in a band who are starting to get a little media attention and they are constantly being asked for photos by smaller music magazines and newspapers. As I’m the only guy with a DSLR that my brother knows (combined with the fact that they have no money to hire anyone) they want me to take some promotional shots for them.
I was wondering if you or your readers might have any suggestions on how to go about getting some good band promo shots? Any tips on types of locations, posing etc would be greatly appreciated.”
Looking forward to hearing your suggestions for Brett!
