By the time Paradise Lost took to the stage at Hammerfest IV, control of the photo-pit had gotten so out of control and over-crowded with amateur-hour snappers, that the band ordered every single photographer to get out. EVERY SINGLE ONE. That’s why our man, Gary Wolstenholme, was only able to get one photo from their set.
We know every photographer has got to start somewhere, but if you’re clogging up a photopit whilst trying to take photos on a flippin’ iPhone, then perhaps taking band photos at a festival isn’t your true calling in life, yeah?
