Last month I was invited to be part of a very cool project. Alternative Press was putting together the cover for their new AP Tour issue and needed to create images of the singers of each band involved in the tour, the problem was that these groups were on tour in different parts of the world and getting them together on such short notice for a shoot wasn’t logistically feasible at the time. So the assignment went out to me and two other photographers to capture the members individually and coordinate with each other to build this cover. I photographed Jerry Roush from Glass Cloud and Chris Roetter of Like Moths to Flames along with their respective bands for features in the issue as well as their portraits for the cover. You can check out both bands below or on the AP Tour through the month of November.
Special thanks go out to Jonathan Weiner who photographed both Levi from Miss May I and Jonathan of The Ghost Inside; and to Kane Hibberd who photographed The Amity Affliction.
Television personality Lydia Dominick has been in front of my camera many times over the years so much so that we have become regular creative collaborators on a variety of projects that she is involved with in her local community and good friends as well. When it came time for Lydia to update her personal portraits for her media and online needs I wanted to create something a little more refined and formal that the images we had created in the past. A selection of gorgeous gowns and a cameo appearance by model and actor Adam Varga were perfect compliments to Lydia’s always glamorous presence.
Me and my friend, fellow WNY photographer Clark Dever, have both been named as nominees in the Best Photographer category in Artvoice Magazine’s annual Best of Buffalo readers poll. Along with three other local photographers we will find out who wins along with the nominees of several other categories in this important local event this monday at the Best of Buffalo Bash, an annual free event featuring live entertainment and food from several of the local restaurants that have been nominated this year. Stop out to support Clark and I, as well as several other local artists, vendors, and personalities whose hard work and efforts keep Buffalo the vibrant and artistic city it is.
