We all had a totally awesome time on this shoot – the family’s energy was great together and it wholeheartedly carried high energy throughout the time we spent together. Everyone laughed and one of us even cried… Don’t worry, Mom and Dad were quick to the rescue 🙂 All of the photos made on this shoot were very editorial and it totally felt like we were shooting a GAP, JCREW, or AppleiPhone ad. In the end we all really felt like these look like they should end up in a magazine!
Check out Dirty Cello… a jazz, funk, blues and modern music driven band based out of the San Francisco Bay Area. I guarantee you’ve never heard anything like them, ever before. Not only do these guys gig their butts off when you see them live, but they are out there multiple times a week sharing their original brand of music with the world.
The group is lead by cellist Rebecca Roudman, who has shared the stage with countless acts, symphonies, and artists from across the globe. Jason Eckl joins her on guitar and they often bring in a host of talented Bay Area musicians to back them on bass, drums, brass, woodwinds, and vocals.
From their website: “Dirty Cello presents unique and dynamic music that mixes virtuosic classical playing with the soul of blues, the fire of gypsy music and the beauty of modern folk music. Think B.B. King meets Mark O’Connor meets Yo-Yo Ma.”
Couldn’t have said it better myself. These guys rock!
Our shoot was a nice mix of standard images for the discerning fan, and a little gettin’ gritty for the rock the house fan. All in all it was a blast to setup the seamless and rock out at the shoot!
A few great ways to keep up on Instagram images is joining Instagram, posting your images and following your favorite photographers! There’s also my favorite: Statigram, as well as Webstagram, Followgram, and the Instadesk application for Mac OS X.
