Beyonce has reportedly banned photographers from her concerts. As per the venue contract, "no photo credentials" will be granted for concerts on Beyoncé's Mrs. Carter tour. Beyonce's UK publicist told The Guardian that the reports are true.
If news outlets want photos from Beyonce's Amsterdam, Zagreb, Belgrade and Bratislava shows they are given a link to a website that provides photos taken from Frank Micelotta.
Back in February, following Beyonce's performance for the Super Bowl Halftime Show, Beyonce's publicist reached out to several media outlets asking them to remove the "unflattering" photos of her performance.
"I am certain you will be able to find some better photos," Yvette Noel-Schure, Beyonce's publicist wrote.
"[The media] will do anything possible to get images that other publications don't have," Noam Galai wrote. "If they can't send a photographer to give them original photos, the next best thing they can do is buy photos from fans in the front rows in the arena … Now, not only is the mainstream media showing unflattering photos of her, they are showing bad-quality unflattering photos of her."
