Wanna know how often I go out to things like concerts/shows/performances? Like, hardly ever. I can't remember when the last one was...maybe 5 years ago? Longer? shorter? I dunno. At some point I got over wanting to immerse myself in the scene. And that goes not just for the music scene, but for the art scene too.
Tonight I totally went out! My friend, Joie, put me on the waiting list for Dada, and I have now finally seen him/them play in real life. (as opposed to Youtube)
Here are a couple pix I quickly snapped tonight -proof that I actually went somewhere besides my studio.
I also had the pleasure of meeting Phil's wife, Genevieve. She is their manager and told me tonight that the desk person at their hotel told her that female band managers are almost non-existent. She also told me how much she liked the photos I created with 7Horse, and that they might ask me to do another shoot with them. I don't show those pix as part of my portfolio because they are nothing at all like my regular work, but I also really loved how those pix turned out. Also, the shoot itself was really fun. here are my favorite pix from that shoot:
Genevieve mentioned that she would like to come along for the next shoot to see what goes on. I was, like, "yeah! that would be great!" then I thought...oh jeez...so she can see my tin foil snoots mounted onto shop lights. LOL!! I am just SOOOO professional.
After doing the shoot with 7Horse I thought it might be fun to do a girl-group. And start a page on my site with these kinds of band photos. Meaning, NOT the kind where they are playing on stage...i don't actually like those kinds of pix. but studio pix where I get to make little installations based on the band's theme du jour. I guess there would have to be a sort of meeting of the minds, though, vibe-wise in order for it to work. or maybe not. I dunno; I've never done it.
Good night, world.
