When I got a call from Simon asking for some shots for the new band Mammoth Step, I said yes straight away.
The next call revolved around locations and ideas. With the weather looking bad for the weekend, Simon told me he had got the use of a studio in the middle of Newcastle. Fantastic I thought, lights, big white spaces, everything a budding photographer could wish for!
So we all met up outside a huge building in the middle of Newcastle and then proceeded to carry huge amounts of musical instruments and my stuff up four flights of stairs.
Now here is a new thing I learnt, there is in fact… art studios too! And here it is…
I kept my cool and didn’t freak out, and Simon if you’re reading this I kept my moment of panic bottled up in a very small tight ball deep down inside so you didn’t see it written all over my face.
My mind raced, we moved furniture, we created a backdrop, we borrowed a chest from somewhere else, and we created images together!
The guys were great fun, we laughed loads which is what I’d like to think my shoots are all about… creative fun.
So when all the sweat and tears, the laughs and the goofing around are over.. we made this together.
