Dirty Cello | Band Portraits | San Francisco Music Photography

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!

Instagram :: February 2012

One of my little personal projects continues: my obsession with Instagram. And here is the monthly update to recap February 2012.

Emmy Awards, meowers, parking tickets, vintage things, herbal teas, flowers, music and stormy weather all caught my attention this past month…

Instagram :: August 2011

Stories of peat monsters, construction, travel and music, August was a slow month for me on Instagram. My photography business has been picking up and I’m working with a real camera way more than I’m using the one in my iPhone for leisurely snapping. Kinda bummed about the lack of an IG gallery this month, but happy that the reason those little square crop images are missing from my life recently is an exciting one. It’s been years in the making, and something that I’m very proud of.

Instagram :: July 2011

Another stellar month with Instagram and my iPhone 4. Lots of travel all up and down the West coast had me swimming with excitement of new places and far away lands of the Western United States. I can say this for sure, if you ever get the chance to drive US Route 1 north of San Francisco to it’s end where it meets the 101, and then up into Oregon, do it!

You can catch up on part of our journey on my previous post here, and I’ve got a host of personal project images made on the July road trips coming your way in August. Stay tuned for more images from landscapes and cityscapes of California the Pacific Northwest.
