I had the amazing pleasure of working with my friend and neighbor Akin Girav to produce a fashion music video last week. Collaborating with another photographer was a great experience. We found we saw images with the same eye and we were both able to freely adapt on the fly as we discovered new ideas and built upon each others contributions to create a great finished product.
I photographed the Rolling Stones last night in Chicago. I rarely get asked to go to concerts and the last group I captured was AC/DC back when Bush was still the president. At this rate Macklemore will have to pop tags for 30 years before I see him through my viewfinder.
Recording artist Megan’s The Heartbreak Remedy is now on itunes. I must say, its kind of fun seeing your image as the album artwork!
Doing this shoot for Megan, a singer originally from Indiana now residing in Chicago, was a welcome departure from my norm and required a lot of imaginative thought, knowing that what I was shooting would be combined later with graphics to form the final image.
