Here are a couple of images from my shoot with Angie Lucht, who visited the studio for some promo shots. You can hear her soulful voice and guitar work here.
When my friend Justin Spicer (aka Too Young Too Understand) asked me to collaborate with him on the video for his new single, “I’m Tellin’ You,” I was more than happy to comply. His idea was to create a music video as a sophisticated slide show of still images, and coincidentally, I’d just been reading and pondering about how to do exactly that.
Justin’s music is…oh, how to categorize it? World-music influenced indie-pop?? I dunno…and he might be just as loathe to pigeon-hole it. Regardless, the lyrics have a poignant sincerity that comes only from personal experience, and likewise, Justin’s rough “script” for the video came from a definite autobiographical place that he knew would resonate with me.
We shot several thousand frames over at least half a dozen separate shoots, whittled them down to the hero shots, I did post-production on the still images, and then Justin did all the editing in Final Cut.
Take a look, and let me know what you think!
Last week I had the pleasure of photographing the amazing singer/songwriter SJ Tucker, who I met at Burning Man. She brought some wonderfully photogenic outfits…ball gowns, feather-encrusted top hats, Victorian waistcoats…those, along with her inimitable personality, made for some memorable images.
