Photographers In Dressing Rooms

So an issue has come up recently that I wanted to blog about. The issue is photographers in dressing rooms. Recently a local photographer got their knickers in a twist because they weren’t allowed to ‘hang out’ in the performer’s dressing room. My first question would be why on Earth would you think that was appropriate? Performers need a safe space to get ready to……well, perform.

What would a photographer do in there anyway? Get in the way? Take sneaky, lacivious photos of performers who are not aware of it? My philosophy has always been if you’re not a peformer (or host or stage help) there is no reason for you to be backstage. It’s a security issue. It’s a privacy issue. But most of all, it’s an issue of respect.

Guess what. Every single performer that I’ve asked has said they don’t want photographers in the dressing room. Every. Single. Performer.

‘Nuff said.
