Yes, there are 7-month olds who need their portrait taken.
Yesterday, a client called us at 1:30 and said, “We need a headshot done today for a submission tomorrow.”
The gentleman is a up-and-coming Interior Designer, whose work is landing multi-million-dollar homes in the Chicago area and beyond.
Above is the shot we landed on. There’s a bit of photoshop work to fix a few things that he was hoping would be improved. My proudest moment is around his collar where sometimes it cuts into the skin a bit more than we like.
I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.
Last week, I photographed the two-piece powerhouse Drenge at JBTV.
Brothers Eion and Rory Loveless are a dynamic duo, with a feel that made me think of the White Stripes, only because they are working as a guitarist and drummer, and they have the same last name.
Their lyrics aren’t excruciatingly complicated, but the way everything rolls together into its full sound and feel … is generally considered inspiring to me.
I love watching rock and roll, and these guys bring it. It’s raw. Strong. Melancholy and angst-y. Eion’s vocals are dark and dreary, invoking tones of Morrissey. The guitar and drums are tightly bound, and I couldn’t help but want a bass to fill out the sound, at least a little.
You gotta check them out if they tour near you!
And if you don’t visit JBTV to check their schedule and see who’s playing when, you should. It’s free to the public. You get an amazing seat with your favorite bands. And you get to enter a studio graced by legends of rock-n-roll.
