Some of my favorite work of 2017 was from a pair of portrait shoots for the talented staff at AJ+, the Newsbroke team and the Direct From team. Awesome people to work with, and they’re creating great work. Be sure to check them out.

Town Crier band San Jose

I was hired recently to do some band photography for San Jose rockers Town Crier. They’ve got a new self-produced EP coming out soon and needed some band portraits to go along with it. During an initial meeting over beers at our local pub Trials, we decided to go with a simple, dramatic one-light approach (having meetings that involve beer is one of the definite benefits of doing music photography). We also made time for some quick headshots and a scene in one of the band members’ personal bar.
