First of all, sorry but I didn't know where to put this. :S So after days of trying to get the email of a band's manager, I finally got it. Now that I have it I'm stuck. How should I ask to get a press pass or just general permission to take photos of the band? If I act too professional maybe they'll think I want to sell prints, and they won't like that. If I act like a hobbyist then they might not take me seriously. There's many scenarios and I just don't know how to ask. Any suggestions? Help would be appreciated.
