When Karin gets to photograph musicians, Karin is very happy :)
My latest music photo project has been for singer/songwriter/producer/teacher/friend James O'Brien, known as Darling James, and his forthcoming EP Mood Eyes. James and I spent a day in studio to create the above album artwork for the EP, as well as a couple of updated portraits of the fellow:
Now we definitely didn't do it all ourselves. Set design was absolutely nailed by the very talented Zoe Rouse (who doubled as an assistant), and James' gravity defying hair was styled by Harriet O'Donnell. This was shot at Clik Collective in Kensington, my go-to studio these days.
Darling James and his four piece band are heading on an east coast tour in August, so if you like intelligent songwriting, high-key pop and synth-y goodness, check out the tour dates over on his Facebook page or give the band a listen on his Soundcloud if you're stuck on the west coast.
(Seriously though, go see this band if you can.)
