so, as regular readers of SAJ know, i’ve pretty much gone from a weekly schedule to “post whenever i can find the time” because i’ve gotten busy with paid work. and one of those assignments was shooting photos for the summer 2011 issue of BOOM Jackson.
one of the assignments was to get a photo of the band Furrows.
whenever i shoot a band, i always try to avoid the clichéd band photos. y’know, the “put band in front of a brick wall” or shoot band standing on or around railroad tracks” type of photos. so, i decided i wanted to shoot them in a recording studio. i got in touch with Byron who, along with being the owner of Sneaky Beans is also the owner of Sneaky B Studios and asked if it was cool if i shot them in there since i’ve shot other groups in there before.
he said sure and, come to find out, the band was gonna be practicing there anyway and, after getting in touch with them, they said it was cool if i hung around, after the “official” shoot and just shot them while practicing.
sounded good to me 🙂
(make sure to check out the summer issue of BOOM Jackson to see the photo from the “official” shoot!)
