So, do you actually need a photographer sweating way through the photo-pit at a concert? With tons of lenses and dumb, huge cameras? Or could you just use your iPhone-thingy?

And why are lots of international megastars™ insisting on arranging the worst working conditions for photographers? Limiting shooting time to a minute, positions over hundreds of meters away. On the side. And in pitch dark? Why these restrictions? We only want you to look good.

Below are 101 shots I’ve done up through the years, in no order, and I’m proud of every one of them. I couldn’t do any of them using a cellphone, and I couldn’t do any of them without access and time to do a decent job.
