This was fun! Another great shoot for Guy Oseary and Maverick Records. I did not know a lot about The Deftones before. By the end of the shoot I was impressed. Great guys, great band! We shot all over downtown LA. NOT the first time for that. It was for publicity so we kept it quick and easy. I knew exactly where to shoot cuz I’ve shot in DTLA for many years and knew all the best locations.
It was always a challenge shooting bands that I did not know much about. I had to get them to relax and I had to get to know them fast! My technique was simple… get them to talk about the music they loved. Once I knew what they were into it made it easy for me to get them to relax and be their best in front of the camera. I still use this technique to this day! Everyone love music!
