I just had the pleasure of shooting the awesome band Cherri Bomb a few weeks ago. It’s been a while since I had the chance to spend a day with a band and do a shoot. The shoot was for me and the band. No real client, just like the good old days when I shot bands for fun! We spent the day at EDGE Studios in Los Angeles creating as much as we could.
Cherri Bomb is 3 grrls and 1 guy. They play great Rock&Roll and are really talented. Nia Lovelis plays the drums & sings. Rena Lovelis plays the bass & sings. Casey Moreta plays guitar & sings. Miranda Miller plays guitar, keyboard & sings. Basically they do it all and they do it well. I saw them play at The Whiskey in Hollywood last year and they blew me away.
This shoot was all about having fun. We shot 5 different set-ups; group shots as well as individuals. Its been about 5 years since I shot a band and to honest it felt like 5 days. Its like breathing for me, I just do and don’t think. I love shooting a young band like this because they have great energy, passion and most of all are not jaded by the business. Plus this band has a great sense of style and that made my job easy. Simply put… Cherri Bomb makes me look good.
