BIG TALK of the Town

The talk started one night at The Casbah, hanging out with our girl, Anna. She’s connected with Big Talk and mentioned wanting us to document their mini tour – of course, we were immediately on board. Jump to a few weeks later, we found ourselves up in LA at a costume shop with our good … Continue reading

Sprinting Through Tahoe with Mercedes Benz

We started our camera prep days before. We tried to rent a Sprinter van to drive to Lake Tahoe for our shoot with Tim Tadder and Mercedes Benz, but all the rentals were booked so we settled for a Ford Transit Van.

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

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
