Band Portrait: Stomp Status

Stomp Status is a local band with a cool back-story – they live together in a house where they all teach, compose, practice, and party.   For potential use as album art on their new CD – eponymously named “5440” (their street address) – the goal of this shoot was to provide diverse portraits of the band at home.

Band Portrait: The Archives

The Archives is an old-school, serious Reggae band with an album that will be released soon by ESL Music.

Good band portraits are as varied as other types of photography – there are no hard and fast rules (as Jay Dickman often says, “It depends!”).  I think this one works reasonably well because the band looks interesting and serious, and the background has character but isn’t distracting or modern.   The color version was good, but black and white is more old-school.
