The Danes | Band Photo Shoot

I love music and I love working with bands.  When songwriter and lead guitarist Daniel from The Danes approached me to do a shoot for his band's upcoming EP release I was excited to help out.  As an up and coming group in Los Angeles, they needed some promotional photographs for their new EP they are releasing this summer and also for their website and other marketing materials. So Daniel, Dana, John, and Patrick came over to the studio and we did a three hour shoot on the white seamless background to give them some awesome and classic studio shots.

Here are some of my favorites photos from the shoot:

 

Check out The Dane's new single "The Ultimate Tool", which was released this last week. You can listen to it on Soundcloud here!

Matt | Commercial Acting Headshots and More!

My good pal Matt came in to get some updated headshots since he recently signed with a new agency and was in need of updating his materials. These are but of a few of the many many awesome shots we got! 

Matt did the 5+ hour package and we got to spend some sweet time taking tons of shots for his acting portfolio.

While Matt mainly was looking to get some upbeat commercial shots, I made sure we got a few theatrical "dramatic" shots as well.

Matt Gilmore Theatrical Headshot

When shooting I love to get actors exactly what they need, and in my opinion that means getting some extra professional fun shots for websites, social media, etc. and not just the typical looks for acting submission sites and auditions. So while we shoot a look I make sure to get some fun shots in too before we change looks:

We tried the sweater and decided it wasn't working, but we kept this shot because it looks like a fun "author biography" shot...

Getting new headshots is a serious endeavor for an actor, so like I said, we like to have fun when we shoot!
