Legion of the Sonne solo shots

This weekend I had planned to see Legion of the Sonne perform live at Outburn Magazines “Battle of the Bands”. Due to the death of a childhood friend I will be attending a wake instead. I know I promised David I’d be in attendance but I’m sure he understands the weight of my reason. A few months back I had the opportunity to work with the band on some promotional photos and had a great time. I had stepped away from working with bands for some time but these guys made me love getting back into it.  As the session came to a close I stepped away from the band shots to photograph them individually. If you guys ever decide to do solo albums. You know where to come.

Sunday Session: Legion of the Sonne

Today I had the pleasure of working with the local Jersey Metal band Legion of the Sonne. The band were totally cool and a pleasure to work with. I would say they completely renewed my faith in working with bands and musicians again. Dave, Bryan, Paul, Rafael and Alexis were all amazing guys. Laid back, funny and open to all my ideas. What I originally had planned to be a quick one hour lasted almost three. I was just having such a good time that I wanted to give them more options and flexibility. The shoot took us through a couple of areas in Hoboken and back to the studio. They helped with moving furniture around and even cleaning up. The band seemed to enjoy the experience and really enjoyed the pictures. They have a demo out and have some shows scheduled in the upcoming months.
