02.02.95 – Red House Painters | 4AD Records

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.
