SPB: What is the hardest part about taking photos in a rock club or basement?
DeGross: The hardest part about taking photos in a standard rock club depends. If it's a really big band, the hardest thing to do is to just get permission to do photos. For example, I did photos at the Danzig show and that was extremely hard to get permission to shoot. Another problem with clubs is sometimes there is bad lighting. Shooting in a basement is a way different thing; shooting in a basement can suck sometimes: it can get really hot and fog up your camera, it can be crowded, you have to push to the front—usually just more risk of your camera getting broken. Shooting anywhere can be a challenge, but sometimes that’s the fun of it.
