Beyonce has banned professional photographers from her Mrs Carter Show World Tour because she wants to prevent unflattering pictures being published.
Her UK publicist confirms that ‘no photo credentials’ were granted for her concerts – instead Beyonce has hired her own photographer, the amazing Frank Micelotta, to capture her in action.
This comes after the singer’s publicist asked a website to remove ‘unflattering’ photos of Beyonce performance at the Super Bowl.
A lot of artists do not credential professional photographers, or only allow them to shoot for a limited time before asking them to leave.
I’m not sure this is very effective anymore, now that everyone has an iPhone.
