welcome to the last post of Scenes Around Jackson for 2011!
and for the last post of the year, we shall continue our tradition!
so, once again, it’s time to check out photos from the Esperanza Plantation Holiday Showcase!
like i’ve said for the last few years, this is a 100+ photo post so don’t expect a lot of commentary from me. just sit back and enjoy photos of a rocking show!
and, as always, let’s give props to Stephen Barnett of Davaine Lighting for lighting so awesome, i have trouble describing it 🙂
so, without further ado:
The Line-Up! (in order of appearance)
– El Obo
i mentioned, way back in september of last year, that my friend rion had assisted me on a shoot for PORTICO Jackson but i was gonna wait to post the photos from that shoot until after that issue came out in november. of last year.
so, as you can see, it took me awhile to get back to that but, figured i’d finally go ahead and post those photos LoL.
it was my first shoot for PORTICO and i was assigned to shoot Zac Harmon. he was back in mississippi and would be performing at the Farish Street Heritage Festival.
PORTICO wanted some photos of him and then some photos of him when he was actually performing on stage.
so, after borrowing some lighting gear from my friend Tom Beck and asking rion if he would be down to assist me, i made my way downtown to farish street to get started.
Back in November of 2010, i was put in contact with the Rock 93.9 radio station down here in Jackson, MS.
they were working on putting together a “Girls of Rock” 2011 calendar and they wanted to go with a more professional photographer this time.
the models, the “Girls of Rock”, would be chosen in a series of contest sponsored by Rock 93 and held at different bars/clubs around the city. after 12 girls were picked, that’s when i would take over and start shooting.
so, for the last week of november and first week of december i, along with my friend Rion who was also my assistant, shot my first calendar at different locations around Jackson.
and since 2011 will be ending in a few weeks (wow, this year went by fast) i figure i’d go ahead and post a few of the photos.
