This was a fun shoot in San Francisco, California for the day. We flew up to meet the band at the studio. It was a publicity shoot for 4AD Records. The Red House Painters were led by singer/songwriter Mark Kozelek. What I remember most about this shoot was Mark. He was so cool, mellow and very nice. We did 4 set-ups and kept it simple.
When I did publicly shoots for labels back then the big thing was to keep it easy and fast. Bands did not want to shoot all day and hang around. So I would just keep it fast! Flying to San Francisco for the day was fun! I grew up in the Bay Area and shooting in SF was not new for me. I’m a NO-Cal living in SO-Cal.
