Band Offers Streamlined Access to Shoot Them in Concert — For a Fee of $150

Sometimes getting access to shoot concerts or major concert events can be tricky. Dealing with publicists, event planners, and even security. But one band is making it super simple to get into the pit with your camera in hopes of capturing great shots — for a fee.

Well-known American rock band Hawthorne Heights has posted an advertisement of sorts on their website, selling anyone the chance to take photos of them at this year’s Warped Tour. The cost of admission? $ 150.

Are you an aspiring photographer? Come take pictures of us all day at Warped Tour! We will provide you with the access, and experience you need. We will also take your pictures and put them on our Instagram page, and give you full credit for it. This is a great package for anyone who loves taking pictures, whether its for a hobby or professionally.

The whole thing is pretty interesting for the simple fact it’s so terribly vague, as pointed out by Popular Photography. Sure, the ad says the photographer (or should we say ‘customer’?) will be given “full credit”, but does that mean he/she retain ownership of the photos they’ve taken? Will the photographer be thrown into a corner and expected to work from there? What happens if the shots are horrible? Do they still get used on the band’s Instagram page?

As of this writing, the link to the advertisement on Hawthorne Heights’ page is no longer working properly, leaving it unclear as to whether or not the offer still stands.
