As a photographer, I’ve never had band management ask me to check on a venue’s photography policy. But when Tim Reynolds publicist sent an email asking me to check on the photo policy for Blues Alley in Georgetown, I hopped on the phone.
“Yes, I’m a photographer and I’m scheduled to shoot the Tim Reynolds show you have coming up. What’s your photo policy?”
“We have no photo policy.”
“Oh, ok. So I’m good to go, anything else?”
“No, it’s a ‘no photo policy.’ We don’t allow photos at all.”
“But you can shoot the soundcheck if it’s okay with Tim’s management.”
