This was not actually a headshot session, but because I don’t often do band photography, I thought I’d just classify it as such.
I was flattered when talented singer/songwriter Ryan Hayes asked me to do ‘headshot’ band photos for his Portland, Oregon based band, Hurtbird. They were heading out on tour and needed new press photos. We chose a setting local to the artist at Oaks Bottom in Sellwood. The results were rewarding.
It was also a surprise to see that Hurtbird’s press photo beat the headlining band for the front cover music festival announcement of the Tacoma Weekly newspaper.
