This photographer is, quite simply, a dick. Follow the rules people, whether you agree with them or not. Personally, even flash is allowed I'm not going to use one at a concert because I don't like the flat look of on-camera flash. No criticism of those who do - if the artist and venue allow it.

Playing music is extremely difficult. A bad note can usually be heard by everyone. There's a saying among musicians: "an amateur practices until he gets it right. A professional practices until he never gets it wrong."

So that means we should not shoot bright lights at musicians.

Besides, flash isn't needed. The stage lighting at professional venues is great.

Don’t rate him that high. At least a dick has a function.

"I used the flash from 2000 feet away". Must have really improved his photos.

That was the first thought I had. Of course, maybe he had this flash (external link).


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

This is John Sales home site..... wouldn't say he was absolute magic, but he surely knows what he is doing, and knows his flash was going to have no effect of the image but would draw attention. He was trying to be a prick here....

Ok images.... that also proves he knew exactly what he was doing.

Its by knowing and mastering all the rules that you learn which ones you can break.
