Everybody knows that having great images in every article about your band is good for your career. Plenty has already been said about what makes for a compelling live shot or a particularly stunning portrait, but not many people talk about the information that people need before they publish a photograph. There’s a lot more than just the artist’s moniker that goes into a caption.
Trust me, as someone who's written about musicians for a while now, it's extremely annoying to be ready to post a story or send off to an editor, only to realize that some detail was left out by a band’s manager or publicist. Please include all of this information along with any photo you and your team send for publications to use, as these details will make everyone's life and job much easier from the start.
