Thread: Zouk + Dslr

  1. #1

    Default Zouk + Dslr

    Hi all.
    Party photographer here. Was just wondering if you could bring a simple dslr into zouk eg on mambo nights. I carry a 400d btw. Did call them before but answer was too vague. I dont need stupid comments like "trial and error" or "-insert life story here-" short and sweet.

    Thanks.

    Well,

    I guess you can bring. When you see people start bringing their digicam out to snap photos of themselves, I guess your DSLR also can come out. If they stop you, just tell them others are also taking photos. Just that your cam looks BIGGER that's all
    The DIFFERENCE is not in the "Cue", it is in the SKILLS...

    If I'm not wrong, you'll need to be one of those registered 'Night Spot Photographers' or something like that in order to take your camera into such places to take photos.

    Since you are a party photographer, think you should know something about it, or at least it's easier for you to find out about it.

    Good Luck!

    i previously covered my sch event at st james but i got to get the crew tag from the committee. if you're covering event then just bring in and get a tag. otherwise if you're bringing to zouk, don't use flash shoot discreetly until otherwise told to stop, when told, act blur

    I usually bring a DSLR and a prime lens if I'm having drinks with a huge bunch, never had any issues.

    I am trying to find out myself also, had asked a friend that work in one of the pub club to find out for me already, so now is waiting for her reply.

    Will update everyone here if I get any info.

    i brought my 300D with kit lens and flash into zouk about 2 years ago with the camera wrapped in a towel. the bouncer just asked me what it is, show him and gave me some weird stare. he let me in after that.

    i think has got to do with the crowd status. i went on a wednesday, and i went in pretty early at 10 odd. =)

    Quite the redundant reply i was expecting from a dumb CSer.

    Well aside from his misadventures, i've gotta say Zouk is really anal about this situation.
    What i do not understand is their level of conservativeness. I mean, if i did take pictures and post them somewhere, its free publicity for them (excluding the illicit ones of course)

    Sigh. Singapore should really take a chill pill.

    so uptight
    relax and take a chill pill!

    ha well, same reasoning everywhere la, if the customers complain then they have to tell you, not very nice, so just stop everything first
