An essential part of a photo is what it communicates, and this won’t happen without some thought, planning, and hard work. No where is this more true than in portraits for musicians. The image has to communicate what the music is about and motivate the viewer to pick up the CD and listen (or click the link as is the case today). When the image doesn’t do that, no amount of savings on the photoshoot is worth the loss of sales.
I will tell you more about this photo soon. It is part of a larger project I am working on currently. The work I have done in the music industry has to be one of my favorite things to do as I’m working with other artists and doing so pushes creativity to new levels.
