At the tail end of the book, there is some advice as to who to reach out to prior to getting access to the gig, but little else for the photographer's messy image licensing world after that. Instead, the author encourages the reader to play nice with other pros in the photo pit, steer clear of flying objects (and people), and be prepared with the right gear for the venue. There is a section on gaining access backstage to meet performers and I'm sure that there are a myriad of other ways to get fantastic band shots (e.g. at rehearsals), gain the trust and access to the performers, and consistently get greenlit into venues, but again it is up to the reader to discover and try them out on his own. My main misgiving (perhaps with the industry as a whole rather than this book, specifically) is that if you follow the conventional route into the photo pit for the requisite fifteen minutes, without ever interacting with the performers, you will miss out on the most creatively satisfying aspect of photographing musicians; the collaboration between the performing artist and the visual artist.
Update: In conversing privately with the author in greater detail, I learned that the book is intended for an intermediate level of photographer looking to build a strong portfolio, rather than geared towards more seasoned professionals looking to diversify an already strong one. Also, with the plethora of new photographers, inexpensive high ISO cameras, and internet speed marketing has virtually eliminated what once was a lucrative career option for some, in the same way that editorial and photojournalism once represented high-end careers in photography. J. Dennis Thomas covers the important technical and logistical challenges of concert photography from a positive, practical and productive outlook.
It has a very nice print quality and its content is very well addressed.
Easy read, but a lot of tips and pratical examples.
I recommend for beginners and enthusiasts.
