Had a great time this year at the Days Of The Dead convention here in Atlanta. Always an awesome group of people who come out for this.
In the gallery below I clicked a few shots of some of the greats from horror film history, including Leatherface with a mini chainsaw, and four of the actors who portrayed Jason in Friday the 13th. The discussion with the kids from Stranger Things was absolutely amazing.
Two different head shot projects I worked on the past week. One on a solid grey fold out, one with a courtyard behind them. The standard grey was a tight squeeze. We were set up in a 5×8 space with three strobes, backdrop, reflector, stool, model & photographer.
The environmental shots were definitely more spacious since I was out on a terrace balcony with a courtyard behind us. This was a tough shoot though because we started at sunrise. It gave a beautiful hair light and rim light, but I was chasing my exposure all morning as the sun came up directly behind them.
I had the exciting opportunity last week to be part of something I’ve always wanted to photograph. I’ve been to dozens of festivals, but this was something totally different.
It was crazy, and I had a blast shooting it! Bassnectar rave in ATL with 10,000+ people.
DragonCon 2016 has come and past. What a great year! Always a pleasure to see so many friendly faces, and to catch up with people I dont get to see through the year.
As usual, I photographed all late night material. Pretty much every picture I took happened sometime between 10pm and 5am. There was so much great music!! Got to see Here Come The Mummies again this year. And had a last min surprise too… Shooter Jennings played con. How awesome is that? It was difficult because Shooter played the same time Voltaire played. Yeah I was running around like crazy trying to photograph two great musicians in two different building at the same time.
In the end we had a great time and I took a lot of photos! It’s tough narrowing down my favorites but here’s a stab in the dark at the ones I think came out the best. To see the full gallery, they’re posted HERE. Feel free to download and post whatever you’d like for non-commercial use.
It’s that time of year again! DragonCon is upon us. Last year had a fine line up of musicians and performances. One of those was from Here Come The Mummies. I’m looking forward to seeing these guy perform again and the opportunity to shoot the show.
