I recently had the opportunity to work with musician, Laura Mae Socks for her new promotional photos. Laura is a country musician and a long time friend so when she asked me if I would be interested in photographing her, it was a no brainer. I have mentioned on this blog before that musicians are some of my favorite subjects to photograph because it's always a collaborative process. This shoot was no exception. Laura lives in New Orleans but was recently in my area for a few weeks which gave us an opportunity to get together. We decided to spend the day in two unique locations playing with various concepts. Laura is also a trained makeup artist and has a great wardrobe to work with so I was able to concentrate wholly on the composition and lighting of the photographs.
We had a hard time editing these down and ended up with quite a few great shots. These are some of my personal favorites.
