Portraits // Urban Rescue

Today my friends, Urban Rescue are releasing a brand new record titled "City Sessions". While they were on a tour stop in Ontario, I was able to go out and take press photos for their next season as a band. Jordan expressed a departure from the previous city backdrop toward a focused, clean backdrop aesthetic. Before their set on the Roadshow 2017, we set up a makeshift studio on an empty level of the Citizens Bank Arena. I shot these with one remote-triggered flash in a soft-box. I intentionally turned up the power of the flash to achieve higher contrast and deepened shadows. 

Check out City Sessions on what ever you listen to music with!

My friend Lauren invited me to hang out at a show her band (Beer and Hymns OC) was playing and to take some pictures as well. The show was at the Lido Live in Newport Beach and featured sets from The Wilder Society, Pawnshop Kings, and The Eagle Rock Gospel Singers. At the end of the night, the crew came together to finish the night with a sweet set of 80's hits.
