For musicians I offer a lot more than just photos for your next Instagram post. While you’ll get the standard Editorial experience when you shoot with me, you also have access to a ton of other cool content like…

  • Dope video clips. With the average Millennial attention span standing at a whopping 8-12 seconds, getting out succinct, on-brand content is imperative now more than ever. Ask about adding a video package to your shoot for behind the scenes clips and cool promo visuals – the creativity is endless. To see some clips I created leading up to an EP release, click here.
  • Electronic press kits. An electronic press kit, or EPK, is a digital interactive PDF file that tells a media source about your music, brand and work. It includes everything from links to your Spotify and Soundcloud to photos, news articles, music video links and contact info – all laid out in a visually pleasing, on-brand direction. Want an example? Click here.
  • Graphics + gifs!  Creative content is essential, and it’s even more important to be interactive. Also who doesn’t like gifs on Twitter?
  • And of course, photography. Just as with my editorial shoots, this is a collaborative creative environment. I want to hear your music, understand what influences you, and truly get a good idea of who you are and what your music represents so that we can execute it flawlessly. If you don’t necessarily have a vision yet, that’s okay too. We can collaborate on ideas to get you grounded and focused on your brand as a musician. Keep scrolling to see more photography, but first…

A little bit of backstory behind these content examples for you guys: These are my friends and longtime clients Jet Black Alley Cat. While touring last year shooting for their Motel EP release, I stood on our motel dresser and took this photo with the disco ball on a Polaroid camera. (I also bedazzled the jackets, but we won’t talk about my glitter hobby.)

It was THE shot. When we got back home, adding the sparkles in Photoshop to make a .gif was really the only thing changed apart from brightening it up for print some, and then I gave it their music below to use as a preview of their single ‘Miami Baby.’
