Hurtbird : Promotional Band Photography Portland

I was flattered when talented singer/songwriter Ryan Hayes asked me to do band photos for his Portland, Oregon based band, Hurtbird. They were heading out on tour and needed new press photos. I love working with artists – bands and musicians in order to create something unique in accordance with their vision. The results from this outdoor location session in Oaks Bottom city park were rewarding.

Ryan styled the shoot with his hipster businessman look and brought his dog, Molly, who seems to be a celebrity among the local SE Portland music scene. The dry grassy field was a perfect setting. And, no, we didn’t actually have a domestic eagle. The bald eagle was photoshopped into this image to make for an epic Americana scene.


Hurtbird’s press photo beat the headlining band for the front cover music festival announcement of  the Tacoma Weekly newspaper.
