Over the weekend, I shot a music video for Late Cambrian‘s Song “Ryan Gosling.” I did the cover of their new EP, Social Season and we got into a discussion about doing another music video. Within weeks we are off and running. We shot this one at St. Vitus in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, a heavy metal bar/performance space. Ideal location. We had a great group of dancers and extras for this one as well. Hectic shooting schedule but that’s the norm with music videos. Special thanks to Yang Jiang who did the production stills and my great camera crew: Dallas, Caty and Callan.
Here’s some more from the artist series. I was upstate photographing painter Lisa Sanditz. She works out of a studio building that is behind her house. She paints these beautiful color pieces. I also shot her in the house with her partner, Tim Davis. They are into their cats. There is a giant paper mache cat on her porch, leftovers from a party.
Late Cambrian’s EP Social Season debuts on June 5. I shot the cover at Trash Bar a few weeks ago. The have a photo booth in the back of the bar. So I set up a shot there. I shot several scenes, really not knowing which one would make it.
This time I visited Jason Middlebrook up at his house and studio in Upstate New York. Situated along a stream, it’s an idyllic setting for his works inspired by nature. He was working on some pieces for a show as well as more from his “Fungi” series. His daughter came along for our exploration of the area as well.
I was interviewed by Matt Dutile for the Digital Photography School website. Matt and I chatted here in my New York office. I was very flattered. Here’s the link. Thanks Matt!
