Winterfolk Photographers Guidelines 2014

These are general guideline/suggestions only.

Photographers Specifics

 flash – please respect the performers, and the audience, and limit the use of flash. Nobody appreciates having a flash go off in their face when they are performing. On the other hand, if using a flash is the only way to get a decent shot, you can use it sparingly off to one side of the stage or the other.

 photos of performers should show some audience interaction or other

unique events happening, we do not have much use of photos of performer only.

 what we do like are photos of the audience, audience interaction, full houses, happy smiling people, clapping, cheering, reacting, etc

 photos that tell a story

 photos of sponsor signage onstage (L&M for instance)

 photos of Winterfolk volunteers, CD table, etc

 photos without liquor, cigarettes, food in the subjects mouth or hands. It is a bar, of course, but not too obvious.

 please wear your Media badge during your schedule for ID purposes (if this applies)

 you are free to take other photographs for you own use, of course
