It's not always the most creative position as your really unable to move around, but there's still something fun about shooting the stage with a 400mm lens. I haven't shot for Getty Images in nearly a year, but this paid assignment landed on a day that i had no other work. They also brought this well used Canon 400mm F2.8 for me to use.
