This was a good one! My good friend & publicist John Vlautin at Island Records hired me for a publicity shoot with the Red House Painters. I did the shoot up in San Francisco at Blue Sky Studios. I don’t remember the band so much, but I do remember their leader Mark Kozlik. SO nice, cool, talented and fun. SO easy to shoot and very laid back.
I spent the day shoot multiple set-ups. Having the band change looks and shooting quickly. I never liked making shoots last longer than they had to. Everyone has something better to do so be quick! Know what you want and shoot it.
A band like the Red House Painters was easy to shoot cuz they were mellow. Made my day easy. I remember Mark ended up being in Cameron Crowe’s Almost Famous. He was in the band Stillwater. Too crazy! Best movie ever!
