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.
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:
The PBS show “Hey Virginia!” did a feature on my “Moonlight Silhouettes II” exhibit with an interview and behind the scenes footage. Check it out by clicking this link to the PBS website.
The Creating Process.com followed my “Moonlight Silhouettes II” project from construction through the first opening of the exhibit and their photos and short video can be seen here :: thecreatingprocess.com/creators/rich. Thank you to Guillermo Ubilla for the nice piece and especially cool photographs of our crew at work back in July. The exhibit will also be shown in November and December with an opening event on Saturday, November 5th. Details coming soon.
I directed and edited this video with Brian Wimer. It is the title track from the new Sally Rose Band album “Gotta Be Gold” and we dusted an entire room with gold foil, glitter and confetti and sprinkled in some go-go dancers.
I did a quick little video shoot yesterday with Koda of Chamomile & Whiskey. It is a melancholy Christmas song his late father wrote and you can see the piece here :: “First Christmas Without You”.
