I love photographing musicians. If I could figure out to making a bajillion dollars doing so, that would be what I’d want to do. It’s what I’m trying to do and have tried to do for many years now.
As someone that loves creating photographs of musicians, I have a few photographers that I love who actually do photograph musicians as their profession. One of those is Danny Clinch.
He came out with a book towards the end of 2014 called “Still Moving” and its’ a hard cover, lovingly created portfolio of photographs of musicians over the decades. It’s really beautiful, and thi cover image of Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder is why I love his work so much – simple, elegant and wonderful.
His book is available on Amazon. If you love music photography, especially portraits of musicians, pick this up and dig in. It’s lovely stuff.
Musician Hannah Sander’s debut album “Charms Against Sorrow” releases February 3rd, 2015. I’ve worked a few times in the past with Hannah, and I love her to death. Our most recent session had us creating images for this upcoming album. She also gave me the chance to design the entire album packaging layout – the first real time I’ve had the chance to do something from inception to completion for an album design. For this blog entry, I’ve tried to dig up all the rough draft posts I sent to Hannah over the course of designing the album and wanted to take you on as close to a step-by-step journey as I could while I made this package.
Last September I had the privilege to not only be a sponsor but also the event photographer for the 2014 Restaurant Week opening celebration Farmers Dinner.
A massive culmination between Nashua’s Great American Downtown, The Farmers Dinner and lots of local restaurants, chefs and staff – the Restaurant Week Farmers Dinner celebrated not only local chefs and venues, but local farms who grow organic produce and foods.
Nashua’s Main Street was closed off and tables were set up for the attendees to eat under an open sky. The entire event was a smash and it went off perfectly.
It was a really amazing event and I’m excited to see it return next year.
I’ve been stumbling across old, out of date film recently, and my studio fridge is once again jammed full of rolls of 120 and Polaroid film. Some days I’ll open the fridge just to look at it for a moment and remember my roots.
Y’all know I love this lens. Here is my official review of the lens up at DEDPXL. Enjoy!
