My shoot with Moving Mountains for AP Magazine

A bit ago I had the privilege to shoot Moving Mountains. A super talented band quickly on the rise to stardom. These guys are hysterical and the nicest people (with rock star edge of course). I absolutely loved them and am so excited for all the success coming their way. I worked with the incredible Christopher Benton at Alternative Press Magazine for this shoot. Love AP, love MM, love Chris! Thanks guys!

Boys Like Girls – behind the scenes of our latest shoot for AP

Recently I had the pleasure of photographing pop stars Boys Like Girls for the October Issue of Alternative Press Magazine. The shoot was hysterical, I had a lot of fun, and got an enormous amount of great shots. The guys were up for anything, so we were able to play around with different set ups. Meeting them its not hard to see that BLG loves their fans & they love what they do. They are extremely passionate about their music and their message, with a great vibe, and entertaining stories.

The Boys Like Girls crew is exactly who they are, no fake airs, no bullsh*t, which is always refreshing and it makes for an amazing shoot with total freedom. They’ve been touring for a few years straight and will continue to hit the road with the release of their new album Love Drunk.

Check out their myspace and new video with Ashley Tisdale .

Here’s what they said:

Martin: Carrie makes the smallest detail larger than life. I had a blast on the shoot, even though she kept asking to see more skin. :)

Bryan: Easiest, most fun we’ve had on a photoshoot.

John: Great vibes, Good Times.

Paul: Awesome time, great vibe. Flew-by, especially considering we’re running on little sleep. Get at me :) .

Taking Back Sunday at the Studio

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.

On location with COBRA STARSHIP

me shooting Cobra Starship

Cobra Starship and I got together at a local hot spot in NYC for a fast and fabulous photo shoot for AP Magazine. Back in October, they were finishing up their time in the studio and gearing up for their Sassyback Tour with Forever the Sickest Kids (on tour now), we had a rainy afternoon to shoot 4 different setups. The band is awesome and they were all tons of fun. Their new album is coming soon…you can read all about that in December’s AP Most Anticipated Albums Issue. (I would like to thank my 1st assistant, Derrick, for pealing me off the floor of the nightclub..sticky is an understatement.)

Cobra Starship’s (which was named by front man Gabe Saporta, taking his inspiration from a favorite pair of his vintage jeans) electric pop tunes have everyone dancing and screaming for more, they are funny, upbeat and 100% rock stars on the rise  – check them out live .. I hear they give their fans wild, high energy, offbeat shows that can’t be missed.

Pictures coming soon!

Recently I shot new music sensation Forever the Sickest Kids for their first cover with AP Magazine. We’ve kept this a big secret, along with a few other secrets coming up in the next few months….. Now that the issue’s release is only weeks away, and the cover shot has been released by AP’s myspace team, I can finally put up some behind the scenes fun with the boys.

(bottom row: kent, danee/groomer, marc. second row: austin, me, alisha/hair, dominiga/stylist. top row: caleb, kyle, jonathan)

FTSK consists of Jonathan, Kent, Marc, Kyle, Austin and Caleb. They are Texas natives, and probably one of the sweetest groups of guys you could meet. Their music is carefree pop rock n’roll with catchy rhythms and beats that you can’t help but dance and sing along with. Known for having the wildest and loudest crowds on this summers Warped Tour, there’s a reason, aside from their killer tunes, these guys have such a following….there hearts are pure gold! Plus they all have incredible senses of humor and kept us laughing all day, and is it any reason the girls pass out when they enter the room? These boys are gorgeous!!!! 

FTSK loves their fans with all their hearts, they are grateful for where they are, they are genuine & sweet with a wild edge. I totally love these guys and was amazed by their diligence to share the spotlight in the photos (although lets be real, Kyle is a lover of the limelight and being in front of the lens)

AP Magazine, one of the best magazines in the universe, listened to the fans on this one, and it was the enormous outcry of support that got FTSK the cover. 

The magazine comes out on October 7th. I have not seen which photos are appearing inside yet. More photos to come of FTSK in October.
