A long time ago in a land far far away….
Okay, recently and actually just across the street from our home…
We got to have a photo session like no other with an amazing band called “Dawn”, and have been privileged enough to be a part of their journey as they produce this amazing album – The Spinning Jenny, Volume 1. Lead singer for Dawn is Kimberley, and we collaborated with her to come up with some amazing concepts for photos for the latest album. It was all about bringing a steampunk vibe to the photos and getting shots that might be from an era long ago or one yet to come. A group of battle weary travellers finding their history and ancestry in the world around them.
We actually did get up at dawn for the shoot, which involved lots of costumed band members walking down our street across to an amazing field across from our house. I can’t imagine what our neighbours think when they look out their windows and see elaborately dressed men and women walking past as the sun is just rising…
I must say I got the biggest buzz and goofiest grin when we went into JB Hi Fi and saw the Dawn album with our photo on it. Kris’s photography and my editing. What an amazing feeling. Thanks Kimberley and the band of Dawn for trusting us with your vision.
