Being a musician myself has always drawn me to photography. Every time my band needed to have a photo taken I loved the process. For this reason I loved the opportunity to get my hands dirty with some exciting music photography.
My long term friend Jace Miller (pictured below) got in touch with me. He needed some shots done for his band Alright Junior’s new album. We had performed together many times in the past so I knew they would be down for some exciting shots.
Most of these shots took place along the graffiti pier area here in the Kensington section of philadelphia. One of my challenges in shooting in such an urban environment is how to find something new that hasn’t been done a million times before. I feel this way for a couple reasons. One I really like the idea of taking a photo in an environment that you would never guess was possible with such limited choices. Two I really like to deliver a wide amount of variety when possible to better my chances at pleasing my clients.
The images below were photographed in construction equipment, underneath I95 and in an abandoned field near Richmond st. This shoot was a blast and I really hope to do more like this.
