A Panic! At The Disco fan was given the opportunity of a lifetime last night when Panic’s road manager asked her to to be the band’s photographer for the show.
Stephanie Estrada was backstage at Riptide Music Festival for Panic’s show in Fort Lauderdale, Florida when road manager Zack Cloud Hall spotted her camera. As the band didn’t have road photographer Jake Chamseddine with them for their two Florida dates, he asked her to shoot the show!
“She said yes and I think she did a great job,” Hall posted to his Instagram. “Go follow her and check out some of her stuff. Support female photographers. I see them in barricades working their asses off and getting less chances than guys with half their talent.”
Tonight the band is playing Tampa, FL and Hall hopes to give the opportunity to another fan photographer.

Tonight about 40min before Panic went on stage I saw this girl sitting backstage with a few of her friends and saw she had a good camera. I walked up and asked her a few questions and on the spot asked her to shoot for us tonight since we didn’t have Jake for these two shows in Florida. She said yes and I think she did a great job. Go follow her and check out some of her stuff. Support female photographers. I see them in barricades working their asses off and getting less chances than guys with half their talent. @stephhestrada good job tonight. Who will I find for tomorrow’s show in Tampa……?
Obviously Stephanie was super stoked to have been giving the opportunity, writing: “I can’t believe this still happened to me last night!! ???????? what an amazing band honestly and yes support your female photographers!!”
