The folks at PopMatters debuted the Chamomile & Whiskey video I shot with the band one evening in September. Simple concept, simple execution. One camera, one truck, a few dogs and a bunch of friends doing what they typically do most any given Saturday evening in Nelson County.
I shot this in Staunton VA with Wonky Tonk from Covington KY. Using some friends (Pablo from Shagwüf, Reverend Bill from The Judy Chops, Rob McAllister from Dead Man String Band with Anna Child as “ring girl”) this was shot with Brian Wimer in a church converted to boxing gym. Wonky Tonk decided to self-release it rather than using a media outlet and it took off on its own with over 1,000 views in just 6 hours. Check it out:
All of my photography projects for art and music in 2017 will be prioritized behind the launch and establishment of my new photo booth company Kool Booth. Please take a minute to visit that site and you will see the photographs I am capable of creating with my custom-built photo booth are truly Hollywood red-carpet quality.
I forgot to post this when it went debuted on Christmas Day. The last of my three videos for the Shagwüf debut album. Lots of hair in this video, some Cheetos in said hair and some cool friends making amusing cameos. Shot in Staunton, Crozet and Charlottesville.
Last week The Hold Steady played a four night run of sold out shows at the Brooklyn Bowl in New York City and I was there to capture some of the highlights in this Flickr set. My personal highlight from the week may have been Patrick from Titus Andronicus and Emilyn Brodsky dueting on “Chillout Tent”. So much so, I made a small photo album of just that song.
RVA Magazine in Richmond debuted the new Shagwüf video I shot and directed. They interviewed me and Sally Rose about the Shagwüf debut album, our latest video starring Opal Lechmanski, and why demanding LGBTQ-friendly, all-inclusive shows is non-negotiable. Shagwüf will love you, baby. Shagwüf has love for all. Here is the video:
