Photographing a band such as The Dons can be like corralling cats. ” Stay Still!” “Don’t pinch his butt!!” but all the while we’re cracking up.
This pose was one of those where I just said, give me that serious face and they did!
After a number of years of photographing The Dons in performance they decided that it was time for a studio session.
I’d like to say that the guys are comfortable with out their instruments …but my Mother told me not to lie …HA!
We had a great session, watch for future images from the shoot in future posts.
I get rev’d when I photograph performers. Partly because I’ve been a musician my whole life and partly because I love to see the bands that are the real deal.
I was doing a back-room-at-the-club portrait session before the band went on and I said, “Guys give me that pretty face” … the guys just laughed .. we don’t do “pretty”. They tried something, It was more comical … I asked them to stop.
But they sure do Rock!
PS. They didn’t like my “we never promised pretty” tag line … go figure
