I’ve been doing party photography for quite a while now, and I’ve noticed that there’s a bunch of annoying questions that keep popping up.
So I’ve written this little list, clarifying why they are annoying, to hopefully keep some of you from asking them.
Please realize whilst reading this, that I hardly get paid (if I get paid at all) for party photography, that I usually work for about six to seven hours straight and that I’ll be navigating a huge drunk crowd for most of that time. Also realize that I’ve heard every single one of these questions at least a hundred times.
Please keep in mind that, while you are standing here, trying to express your desires through your own drunk slurring voice and the noise of the club, I am probably missing out on some wicked shots over at the DJ booth.
Enough with the disclaimers, here it is.
