A few weeks ago I journeyed to New Orelans, home of my friend, rapper and producer, G-Eazy. The reason for my trip (other than drinking incredible coffee) was to shoot album art for G’s latest release “The Endless Summer.” You might remember the images I made for his album “The Outsider” from this post.
We wanted to do something different for his album, so I came up with the idea to make a sort of yearbook that featured girls representing songs on the album. I would tell you which songs go to which girl, but that would ruin the fun! Because the samples used in the production of the songs had a vintage feel, the yearbook took on a very similar vibe, mimicking yearbook photos and typography from the 50s. Be sure to check my cameo on page 7.
The design was done by the multi-talented G-Eazy (Gerald Gillum in the Credits).
Be sure to download the album and see the video single here. I lent some of my grip skills to the video, directed by Tyler Yee (@tyleryee), who is great at what he does.
I am working on a documentary. One that I am not yet at liberty to talk about at length. What I will say is that I will working on the cinematic side of things, while also doing still photos. These are three portraits that I took during our most recent day of filming as well as a few images from a church service we filmed.
As things materialize with the documentary I will let you know. Sorry to be so mysterious!
More photos after the jump!
