TAB TWO 2012
Sometimes you get lucky. In my case "luck" means that yesterday I got to shoot with TAB TWO, a band that has musically influenced me for over 20 years.
Scroll down to the end of this post to give them a listen, you might like it.
"Luck" also means luck in a photographic sense. As a photographer you sometimes need a bit of that, especially when there's no good way you can scout the location upfront. But then, I love surprises. They keep my on my toes, they keep me from relaxing into routine and they keep every job fresh and exciting. Exciting and just a slight little bit unpredictable.
With several ideas in mind already, a quick scouting walk uncovered a near perfect industrial-type area right next door. With colorful cargo containers.
The rest is putting the puzzle pieces together, finding the right light and shooting like a mad man.
Creative things happen when you put one and one together and end up with something greater than the sum of the two - and when you work with creative people, experimentation can quickly turn into a collaboration that ends with not-so-predictable but very exciting results.
