Last fall, I was hired by talented musician Michelle McAfee to shoot some publicity photos in support of her (then) upcoming album Float. After discussing the concept, negotiating, scheduling the shoot, scouting, a bout of food poisoning, and re-scheduling the shoot, we managed to pick a day with a 90% chance of precipitation. Fortunately, our day was the 1 in 10 where the weather forecast was completely wrong. We did have some gusty breezes, but not only did it not rain, the sky was a mix of sun and cloud and the temperature was pleasantly warm. Michelle and I, along with her friend Melissa Mitchell (a talented musician in her own right) hit four diverse locations in close proximity that afternoon, and came away with all the shots we needed and then some.
Michelle used the photos for the inside and back of the CD cover art, as well as the album poster, and her press kit. Here are some of my favorite images from the shoot, as well as pictures of the CD cover.
