Rob Slocumb is perhaps best known for his guitar work with Martha’s Trouble, so when he asked me to do a quick and easy photo shoot for him this week I was thinking music, band, guitars, and all that (see Martha’s Trouble Live at Eighth and Rail in Opelika // Photos), but it was for his day job as a Real Estate agent. I have my typical stereotype of a “Real Estate Agent” in my mind and “cool” wasn’t really top on my list, until now. Rob needed some head shots done for some advertising and here are a few takes from that shoot. These probably aren’t the ones he wants to use for advertising but I couldn’t shoot straight head shots the whole time, we need a little edge.
With that said, if anyone has a chance to go see Martha’s Trouble perform live, they play in various venues around the southeast and are well worth the time. They have a great pop/rock sound with a little Canadian twist so be sure to check them out.
I am a little more accustomed to doing shots off the cuff or candid stuff from bands but I am more than happy to do some standard head shots when I get the chance. Tomorrow is going to be huge as far as photography goes for me and I hope to add a few more head shots of some new faces. Right after I finish this post I am off to Atlanta for Catalyst One Day and the Off the Blogs meetup. Can’t wait to pull out the camera again for the line up I shot back in October for Catalyst08. For a quick recap of that shoot, go here, here, and here. See you back here tomorrow from Atlanta.
