We Takin’ Everythang

A little over a month ago we were approached by ScionAV to pitch on shooting a music video for part of their audio visual campaign. An interesting offer was on the table. Scion came to us through a referral from our designer buddy, Josh Hassin who also referred another good friend of ours, Franck Deron. … Continue reading

OFFF Barcelona 2014

Two weeks ago we were sitting in an auditorium in Barcelona watching our film play on the big screen for an audience of like-minded creatives in our field. We are so excited to finally share this project we were so absolutely honored to be a part of. In March, just one week after both showing … Continue reading

Behind the Scenes – Project 2501: An Homage to Ghost in the Shell

A little over a year ago our friend Ash Thorp asked us to be a part of an insane personal project of recreating frames of the title sequence for Ghost in the Shell. Recreating the world of “Ghost in the Shell” is no small undertaking. Just about every artist, animator, and sci-fi geek respects the … Continue reading

Dead Feather Moon

Rebecca and I both agree that the one of the best things about being a music photographer is getting the chance to hear new tunes before the rest of the world gets to. Often new music is delivered to us via email in the form of un-mastered MP3’s, but not this time. A couple weeks … Continue reading

Reflections

One of our favorite bands, whose members coincidentally make up some of our closest pals, came to us with the idea of doing an acoustic session and wanted us to film it. In the preliminary discussions, we talked about shooting in a recording studio. When the studio didn’t pan out, we decided to downsize. After … Continue reading

With The Pines

It was Saturday night and we were in bed by 9pm, our alarms were set for 4:30am. When the alarm went off in the dark on Sunday morning, it wasn’t that bad – for us. For The Midnight Pine it was a bit hellish as half of the band had played a show with their … Continue reading

Holiday (Rock & Roll) Concerts

It all started with Halloran and I bullshitting in the bus waiting for the first band, The Royal Concept, to arrive. They were late. When they finally got there they were sweet boys from Sweden and were instantly forgiven. After their silly interview with Halloran about penguin soothing and dolphin polishing, I shot some portraits … Continue reading

On Set: Tyga’s “Wait For A Minute” Ft. Justin Bieber

It was last Thursday, alarm goes off at a quarter to five, the sun is not even up yet and I’m questioning why I am. Oh yeah, today is the day we will shoot Justin Bieber. Crazy. It was an absolute honor to work with director, Krista Liney on another music video project so soon, … Continue reading

Joelson Holiday 2013

Though we’ve been doing a ton of traveling for work, it’s been years since we’ve had an out of town getaway just for fun. Way back in April, we decided we needed some time away from it all and started pondering where would be fun to go. A couple days later I received an email … Continue reading

On Set Tyga’s, Throw It Up

A week ago we had the opportunity to work alongside one of our good friends, director, Krista Liney, on Tyga’s music video for Throw It Up. The shoot took place in a dark and scary (and smelly) basement in Downtown LA. Rumors on set were that it was an old slaughterhouse. Yay, just where the … Continue reading
