The typical band photo...it's hard not to fall into that trap. After dating a musician for five years and being in a band for a year and a half, I have seen and heard A LOT of press photo ideas. It's fun to collaborate with artists and work together to find an image that will suit the music. I've shot many Philadelphia bands including Night Panther, Suburban Living, and Queen of Jeans to name a few. Make sure to always have a good understanding of the music and trust your eye. At the end of the day you need to feel confident in the image you made, as well as meeting the bands expectations.
