On a rainy Friday afternoon I had the pleasure of shooting rock band Taking Back Sunday. You can see the article and picture in the amazing Alternative Press Magazine’s Most Anticipated Albums of ’09 December Issue. ON NEWSSTANDS NOW!
Everyone laughed on set so much my cheeks hurt. I could write a million books about what a great group of guys they are. They are funny, intelligent, witty, kind……. just keep inserting adjectives for days and you’ll get a taste of how amazing these guys are. Eddie, who you can tell is the life of every and any party, jumped about 6 feet in the air, crossed his legs and arms and became the flying Buddha. Newcomer to TBS, Fazzi, is the perfect match to the group, carefree, funny, no fear and no ego. I actually found out I went to high school with the brother of the ever sweet and wild TBS drummer Marc…small world. Adam is a total dream and the camera loves him (as all the fans already know), and Matt R not only jumps high in the air and lands quieter than a ninja, is hilarious and quite a dancer.
We did one setup in the rain (my favorite of the bunch), with them all looking sexy and sensational, one setup is inspired by NYC per their request, and another is my take on Mr Potato Head meets graph paper. As an extra we did a family Sear’s style Portrait.
The new album, NEW AGAIN, is on its way, and they were so excited about the songs and about what they had created I can tell this will be one of the best new albums.
FINAL SHOTS COMING SOON!!
