In walks Elias

Filed under: Bands, people — beforethecoffee @ 12:25 pm

I did some clicking for the local emo band Elias. Emo is short for “emotional” and this band has mastered the art of screaming better than any actress fleeing a psychopathic killer in a Quentin Tarintino movie. Go for it guys you rock. Good luck with the 08′ cd.

I had them spread the word that I want to shoot more bands. If you know a band that needs images, let me know.

Casey (lead guitar), George (drums), Daniel (lead singer), Davante (bass), Quigg (lead/rhythm guitar) Shot with two strobes, I got down low so they appear standing on the tracks in an odd sort of scaling.


Casey (left) showed up with a shirt that I was able to match with the graffitti.

I told them a train could come. When it did there was panic in the tunnel, they stopped posing and started running their asses off. I got off a shot just as the train entered the tunnel and then merged the pic of the train with the earlier one of them posing.

  1. I must say that you have one hell of an eye for catching the right pictures at the right time.
    Keep up the great work.

    Hey Steve, Thanks so much

  3. the 3rd photo is perfect. it showcases the “location” as well as the emo band pose. i’m sure you’ve left that band with a lasting impression. by word-of-mouth you’ll be known as that “daredevil photographer who takes great pics”.
