Shooting musicians and bands is something I’d like to do more of. Here are some selects from a shoot this week with Early Day Miners as they are about to embark on a 19 city European tour.
Some fun recent portrait sessions
Of course having a budget is always welcome, but it’s also fun to push creatively when there are zero dollars, a crew of one and about three hours with the band before their concert that night. Here’s New Orleans based queer gothic folk outfit The Wanting with their song Autumn’s Daughter.
Just a month and a half away from one of the best parties in a city known for great parties. Here’s the first of two short promos we made for HNO
I love when clients bring in shots that inspire them. Gives me a good idea of the look they are wanting and a target to aim for. Whether we stick closely to recreating the look or just use them as a springboard to discover something new, inspo images are always a great place to start. Here’s Julie Couret killing it, as usual.
Been expanding the photography side of business, especially into portraits. I guess the best way to categorize them is creative business headshots. Not stuffy and stiff, but something that captures the personality of the subject during the session.
The incredible kids of St. Michael School in New Orleans
My job has allowed me to go to some incredible places and meet some wild people. Here I am shooting on the unfinished 65th floor of a tower on 42nd Street in Manhattan, with Bob Sapp in Tokyo, in Jingdezhen China and in Key West.
This fun little promo combines two of my favorite things: Halloween and drag. Shot in Storyland in New Orleans’ City Park.
Shot on location in New Orleans, this moody music video for the band Early Day Miners features the talents of @tarah_cards and @bobbybonsey
Work has taken me all over the country, even the world, and some of the most fun shoots are at the huge sporting and music events I’d never have access to otherwise like College Football Playoff and NHL All Stars, Essence Festival and Voodoo Festival. I try to grab a selfie at each of them.

Stepping slightly outside of our wheelhouse to create this high energy performance music video for Pacific Skyline.
Los Angeles based lamp maker, Ryan Rogers, creates beautiful brass lighting fixtures. The aim of this short piece is to show a bit of the process, tools and techniques that he uses when crafting a lamp, to get a glimpse of his studio in DTLA and his dog, Wylie, and to highlight the fact that all of the lamps are hand built by Ryan, himself-- and to do it in a fun, stylized manner.
A quick look back at some of the many, many fascinating people we've interviewed over the years in so many places.
