I can't think of anything suitably sarcastic to say. Maybe later.

Shouldn't surprise anyone. Lots of performers officially prohibit photos at performances. If someone gets more negative publicity than positive at a show, there is little incentive to permit it.

Sure, this is a bad idea, but you shouldn't call her a ho...

She still looks better than anybody who's taking her photos, regardless of the silly faces she makes. ( ̄ー ̄)
You'd think somebody who makes that kind of money would be a little more secure though.

Edit: Actually for what it's worth, the comments her decision has elicited from the man-child tinfoil hat wearing crowd more than makes up for any practical consequences for photogs IMO:


solid gold comedy.

I'm gonna regret having any link to this thread but...
I know that magazines sell a lot of issues depending on their cover shot so there will always be someone out there willing to get "The Shot"...
But, what if they (those photographers) just stopped taking pictures of these so called celebrities...what if they were to just back off completely and not shoot them at all...
No Red Carpet moments...no chasing them without their make-up...no coverage at all...
I would love to see the "Celebrity" reaction to that...I give them a week before they all start crying about not being adored & worshiped...not seeing their faces on the tabloids or gossip rags would just kill their egos...

Actually this is the reason why Reality TV was invented and people like Kim Kardasian were created. It was a backlash from the tabloids/media because of stars who refused to play ball.

I don't see what the big deal is. She's an entertainer. Image is important in the industry, so it makes since they want to minimize negative images. If you don't care for as an entertainer, then who cares. To me she is somebody who shows up in news occasionally. I couldn't care less as long her actions are not harming photographers.

Marketing to the point where who you really are becomes irrelevant ... not to mention something to be concealed and controlled.

In my world she's a nothing ... so big deal!

Come on, be fair. She's just trying to protect her image from being snapped by paparazzi in unguarded moments when not at her best. Like when she's yelling at the top of her lungs in front of 10,000 people.

In the news industry, when a performer comes to town, they generally will allow photographers to take shots during the first set. Those photos will accompany the review.

With only "official" photos being provided, I wonder if some newspapers will simply skip the concert altogether. This probably is what I would do.

After all, this simply is about an entertainer and her vanity.

I thought it was about Beyoncé...

That photo was posted all over facebook. She tried to get it off. To me she is typical American Idol type which IMO is destroying American music.

As I said before, if you're a professional, you have to act like one and not kill the livelihood of those who actually are "professional".

Douche bag photographers only hurt other photographers.

This is not the full story. She has actually only banned photographers that use CMOS sensors. Those using CCDs have been allowed to continue on the basis that their shots make her sparkle.

Maybe she should wear more clothes. She's starting to look like Madonna there...

The more interesting part of this to me is that someone with press credentials shared a bunch of terrible photos in the first place, sparking this ban. Social media then made a game out of finding the worst shots and mocking them.

Would people with press passes have don't this sort of thing in the past? Or it the ability to distribute shots anonymously and without accountability part of this? Credentialed photographers publishing paparazzi style and intent shots seems like a great way for to further hurt the photographers role.

... I expect we've all had unflattering photos taken, and although I know little about the woman and accept that someone who has built their career on objectifying femininity is leaving themselves open to negative comment I still feel posting that photo is salacious and gratuitous to the discussion

Granted that's not the most flattering photo of her BUT it is what a photograph is...a moment in time caught on film/sensor...that's what she looked like when the shutter was tripped...she did that, she made that move, she struck that pose...
Now as a photographer would I have use it...probably not and if I chose to it would have been to maybe hurt her in some way...

Dear Stewart,

No, I don't think so. They that live by the image shall die by the image. It's rather less salacious than what she normally sells (as I understand it) and it also illustrates that throwing a wobbly over an unflattering picture is pretty risible. We all look like fools sometimes, but remember Healey's Law of Holes; "When you're in a hole, stop digging."

Cheers,

R.

... I can see your reasoning, however I do feel that these people and the media form a moral contract, often when the celebrity in quite young, from which both sides benefit ... however it's invariably just the press who benefit when the decide to turn on the other party like this

I admit I know little of this woman's history, but I recall the way Charlotte Church was treated by News International and that odious turd that runs it

I remember a while back Barbra Streisand sued the California Coastline Project ( Commission? ) because they had posted an aerial view of her house. So, every news agency posted a link to the photo on their online news story. Had she kept quite, who would have seen it? Likewise, nobody would have posted that image here had she not banned photogs fromher tour. Some people never learn...

I think saying "Beyonce Banned" and calling her names is probably incorrect. These people make very few of their own decisions... They have PR teams that decide all this stuff for them... so the thread should probably say "the PR coordinator for Beyonce's current tour makes a decision to ban all pro photographers except a select few who they hand chose."

They probably didn't ask for her input at all in making this decision.

Can you narrow it down?

Yes, Charlotte Church was treated appallingly. But not just because in one shot she looked like Mike Tyson.

I was talking about Rupert Murdoch ... and I really don't understand this celebrity publicity bandwagon thing, I just feel that while saving The Times is a laudable thing to do it doesn't give the little ****e and his ilk the right to run this type of build up simply to destroy later story for the benefit of their cash-flow

Oh, THAT little ****. But he has plenty of subordinates against whom your original charge can also be levelled.
