Personal Branding Session for an Artist
An inspiring young violinist, nature her auditorium, rocks & babbling creek her stage, the magpies her only accompaniment. Lost in her creativity & expression. You wouldn’t realise it, but she was in the middle of having a professional photoshoot to capture amazing marketing photographs.
What a remarkable opportunity to capture the beauty of Uno’s spontaneous performance. As if I were a fly on the wall – definitely a case of when the photographer is not director nor guide, but rather a creative permitted to experience such awesome musical talent, as the violinist & her instrument danced on oblivious to either me or my lens. This was magic! More than a few passers by were drawn to the music, stopping in their tracks mid power walk – and one even pulled over in their car to enjoy Uno’s talent. SO MUCH FUN!!!
This young musician now has marketing photographs to use for her C.V.; orchestra applications; music CD covers and promotions. Photographs that capture her in her element and convey to her audience all at once her passion, talent, dedication, and vibrance.
“This time I paid close attention to each and every note, to its sound and cadence and meaning, its place in the larger context of the melody. I began by playing carefully, gently, as if each note were a fragile, hesitant breath drawn into silence. As I went on, I let my bow sink ever so slightly into the strings, giving each note a sense of urgency I hadn’t heard before, that I hadn’t seen hiding between all the markings on the staff. The longer notes cried out for a bold, vivid crescendo that would make the room ring, but each time I resisted, allowing the sound to swell ever so slightly before returning it to the place of almost unbearable softness where it had started.”
