The Begowatts Recap

June 07, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I started off June pretty well by working with the Begowatts for the second time. This time, we met up at the High Noon Saloon to take some photos of them backstage and warming up.


The first time I worked with these guys, they had expressed interest in having me shoot one of their shows. When I got the email from the drummer, Arthur, I pitched the idea of showing up a little early to get some photos of them backstage, as well. After figuring out the logistics, it was decided that it'd be easiest if we did the backstage photos at one show, and the photos of them playing at another. Doing it this way will also allow me to get shots of them outside and inside. 


The actual shoot went really well. As I was walking up to the front door, I ran into most of the band, and from there it was a nice, laid-back shoot. I figured candid-type shots would look best, so I just had the band hang out while I took some photos. After that, we went to the stage and I took some photos of them getting ready. 


Here are some of my favorite photos from the shoot. I haven't had the chance to finalize the editing yet, so they're still a little rough.
