the catch-22 of amateur concert videography (photography too partially) is the lack of proper access and the inability to shoot. you can't shoot without having credentials and you can't get credentials if you don't already shoot. some of these projects are shot without permission, because fuck it, what else am I supposed to do? videography isn't my main gig, but I've at least tried to get decent enough at it to diversify my abilities. the lack of a proper system for amateurs to work is unsettling but we will all prevail somehow.
