Green Day Band Photographer = Me!

July 30, 2009

So how cool is this? I won Green Day’s Band Photographer For A Day contest for Tampa! I still can’t believe it. I get to take as many pictures as I want of the band during the show. I even went out and bought a new camera just so the pictures would be good. I’ve got pit tickets, so assuming I get to the St. Pete Times Forum insanely early the day of the show, I should have some pretty pics to share.

Anyone have picture requests, special shots you’ve never seen photographers take at a Green Day concert before? Or just favorite shots you’d like to see in general? I can use all the advice I can get, ’cause previously, this is the best (and only) picture I’ve ever taken of the band. (It’s the back of Billie Joe Armstrong as he heads for a taxi after sound check before his Foxboro Hot Tubs gig at One Eyed Jacks in New Orleans.)

      If you have the pictures from the show and they’re not on the authority is there a way I could see them? I went to that show, actually I went to Orlando, New Orleans, Houston and then San Antonio but San Antonio was a big one for me since my best friend got to go on stage and there aren’t any actual pictures of her =( I was wondering if maybe you had captured one

    Hi Lynne, I’m happy for you, that you got to be the band photographer. I tried for my concert, but someone- someone who never even posted a review or photographs on the Idiot Club- won instead! Thank you for a great review, and excellent photographs.

    AH!! I FOUND YOU!! It’s me! The tall blonde that had the heat attack issue from FBHT in New Orleans haha. My bestie was Jen and we had been their since like 3 or 4 in the morning. Yay! I found your site! I’m totally favoriting this! Sorry I’m kind of hyper, I’ve been up since 11 am January 25th. If you still have any pics from the FBHT show, I would love to have them, and if you have that pic of me, you and Jen in NOLA again for the GD show, I would love to have that too =)
