Ms. Jackson! What can I say? While an honor to be able to photograph any legend, albeit one you’ve grown up with (can you say Penny) was a sheer pleasure, the conditions around this shoot left a lot to be desired. My promoter had me spoiled with all access. Backstage, green room, meals before shows, access to the artists! This show came with restrictions that I was not ready for. Photographers had 30 seconds (not 3 minutes, not the first 3 songs, 30 seconds to capture the images that would portray the artist. I was able to do so, but I think the next performance (yes, I’ll go again) will be from a seat if not the pit.
