I am new to concert photography and I was recently asked to photograph a band's performance at a local concert by the organiser. I was not able to speak to the band or the band's manager before or at the time of the performance to organise any signing of release forms. I managed to get the managers business card before the band left immediately after the show. I emailed the manager after editing the photos asking for permission to use images and he responded with: "Apologies – a DECLINE. All recordings of _____________ remain the exclusive property of Sony Music Australia." I have felt really down about the situation and am not sure what rights I do have to use the images. Can anyone please provide some advice.
