Fashion Photography and Music Photography in New Brilliance
This is a shoot with a fashion model who cannot actually play the saxophone. While fashion photography and music photography are two different realms they both can influence each other positively. The elegance of fashion and the emotional intensity of jazz music, photographed on the rooftops of Hollywood, California.
Music photography with style : inspiration by fashion photography
Photography of fashion has elements of style that strive for elegance and this is a good fit for musicians. There are enough f***ed up musicians out there. Great Jazz musicians always had their own breed of elegance from Dave Brubeck over John Coltrane to Bill Evans and many others. Classical musicians, who mostly perform in formal clothing could use this even more. It creates a strong and positive signal – which is a great thing in times of negative news and statements. It works particularly well for classical music and jazz but who says that a rock musician can’t be far off a line of cocaine?
Above the rooftops of Hollywood, California: a bright outlook in dark times.
We can build a visual story out of ideas and concepts found in 700 years of history of art. Art has always supported the search for the light in times of darkness and the darker the times the brighter the art. We live in dark times and we better not depict the miserable but what can give inspiration and drive to improve things. That goes also for photography that pictures fashion and music.
