Fallbrigade (The Zone’s Band of the Month)

In photography by webmeister Bud0 Comments

One of the hats I wear is that of a Rocktographer — a rock concert photographer — and I’m part of the core group who’s behind rocktographers.ca and I help plan its annual showcase of local concert photography.

Well, Rocktographers just entered into a partnership with The Zone @ 91-3 to shoot promo photos for local artists being featured in the Band of the Month program, and we kicked things off with a bang. Here’s Fallbrigade.

OG Rocktographer Tyson Elder and I helmed this first shoot at Elk Lake, surrounding Tyson’s initial concept of having the band stand ankle deep in the water.

After some field-y fun . . .

. . . Fallbrigade not only nailed the ankles-deep shot, but they brought two picnic tables into the water and stood on them like divine musicians. They went far above and beyond what we were hoping, and it was a great start to shooting Bands of the Month!
