Band Shoot #4: PK

Posted in Music, Photography, Portraiture by daybf on October 26, 2009

I had my longest photoshoot yet, with the San Luis Obispo (Paso Robles) band PK last Sunday. I am very pleased with the results 8D The guys were up for my goofy ideas and in high spirits despite long days at work, and sickness. We met in Paso Robles where we took photos at a winery and their practice space near an airport. The weather was beautiful, and I was lucky the natural light was so nice-especially close to sunset.

Listen to PK on myspace and purevolume

Out by the airport near the practice space:

A plane landed behind us while setting up the next shot. Not the best photo of PK, but I’m glad I caught the plane! [as the sun set too]
Matt walked out to a cluster of watermelons and discovered it was very muddy…resulted in some pretty dirty sneakers.
My trusty assistant Karolin! I was thankful for her help.

We went into the practice space so I could take photos of PK playing.

    I love them all! The light pictures came out so well, I’m glad we got to experiment with them first. they look so natural and seem to capture the band’s personality as well as each member’s. Great job!

    Love the new pictures (: They are really fun!
    I like the cloud gazing ones and the ones outdoors with guitars especially!

    I love the photos with the bands, initials/name written with light! Awesome! I also like the ones of them standing in the field with two of them rocking out in the air 🙂 Awesome Dia!

    The cloud gazing ones remind me of when we all went to the high school and laid out on the basketball courts, fun fun.

      I love those photos from the high school basketball courts! I just ran into them recently when I was looking through older photos [aka procrastinating].
