I’ve done this before and we’re doing it again. Let’s keep it simple and straight to the point. It’s really overwhelming to answer a bunch of questions – so here is everything you need to know.
I am going to have one person intern with me a day for these dates.
JUN 21 – HOUSE OF BLUES MYRTLE BEACH – NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC
SAT, JUN 22 – THE NATIONAL – RICHMOND, VA
SUN, JUN 23 – MID-HUDSON CIVIC CENTER – POUGHKEEPSIE, NY
THU, JUN 27 – STATE THEATRE – PORTLAND, MAINE
FRI, JUN 28 – THE STRAND THEATRE – PROVIDENCE, RI
It’ll be about a 30-minute tour of the venue/explanation of how a show works. You can ask me any questions you might have. This is a good chance to familiarize yourself with the venue. It can be an overwhelming experience so the goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible.
Once the band goes on you can shoot the first three songs from the pit. I’ll shoot with you, if you need help – I am your guy. Think of it as you have a teacher for the shoot. No experience is required and I’ll lend you my camera if needed.
Looking for people interested in photography or wanting to get more into music photography – if this is you, please enter. I am here to help you find the next step.
How To Enter
Instagram or Twitter works great
Post a photo you have taken and write the caption about why you think this would be good for you at this current point in your life and career.
Use hashtag #elmakiasIntern and then write the date of the show. So, for example, #elmakiasIntern24 would be for the 24th. Except there isn’t a show on the 24th, so do not write that.
If you are under 18 that is OK – but you are going to have to bring a parent with you. I remember when I did this for All Time Low they would be like “bring the parent back let’s get me drunk” – well this is A Day to Remember, so they might dress ya parent up in an outfit and make me shoot t-shirts off stage. Not really… But then again ya never known.
That’s all there is to it. No questions! All the info is here. I will let you know if you are selected hopefully the night before.
See you guys soon!
Update – good hanging with you guys!!
