So, we’ve all been there. We go to a concert and want to take a photo with our favorite artists or bands, but that’s almost impossible because of the huge crowds of people and security guards. I’ve been trying many different ways to approach celebrities so i can take a photo with them, and i came up with some great ways to do it. Let’s take a look at them:
Where To Find Music Celebrities
1. Use Instagram
I basically stalk my favorite celebrities 24/7 on Instagram. I live in a very big city and celebrities can be spotted on the public very often. Some celebrities like to post their locations on Instagram while they travel. The most popular one is that they post the cafe they’re in or a monument they’re at. If you can get the timing right, you can see them and approach them to ask to take a picture with them
2. Concert Signing Sessions
This is the easiest and the best way to do it. Most concerts have VIP tickets which you can buy to go backstage and do a meet and greet with the artist/celebrity. During that time, you will be able to get autographs, take pictures or ask them questions. You should follow your artists event calendar and try to find an event that they offer this on. If you spot one, act fast to buy it because they run out very fast.
3. Meet & Greets
Some artists like to do monthly or yearly meet and greets. You can follow your favorite artists and see when they are hosting a meet and greet.
How To Act Around Them
1. They Are Humans Too
When you approach a celebrity, don’t forget that they are humans too. They are not obliged to take photos with you and they do not owe you anything, so if you approach them in a non-cultural way, prepare to be ignored. Celebrities get stormed by hundreds of fans every day when they go in public, and most of them are probably tired of that.
2. Try To Be Kind
I know it’s hard to control your emotions when you meet your favorite celebrity for the first time, but you should try to stay calm and act normal. If you approach them with nice words such as “Sorry, is it possible that we can take a photo together?” They will most likely say yes, since it takes less than 3 seconds of their time and they know that it will make your day.
If you don’t know what i mean, just search on Youtube for ‘Justin Bieber in public’ and you will see girls screaming ‘OMG JUSTIN’ all the time. He ignores most of them, so try to not be like them.
3. Be prepared for a ‘No’
If you see your favorite celebrity on the street and when you ask them for something they say ‘No’, don’t take it personally. As i said earlier those celebrities get hundreds of photo and autograph requests every day, and some of them may be tired of it or just not having a good day. So if someone says “no” to you, don’t take it personally, just say “Okay i apologize, thanks” and move on.
There you have it, i hope this article will help you find you favorite celebrities and take pictures with them!
