As many of you know, I Zach, really enjoy artist shoots. We recently had the privileged of photographing Angie Carr for her new promo and press kit. Angie is a classical singer whose voice has been heard locally as a soloist with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra, and has traveled as far as Japan (of course have to mention she was a top 15 finalist for the Smithsonian’s “O Say Can You Sing?” National Anthem Contest). Not only does she have a great voice but Angie is super cool and laid back and was really fun to work with!
Angie wanted some classy shots inside a church and then some with a more urban feel, so we headed out to downtown Nashville to our studio to prep for hair and make up (by the Amazing Amy Lynn) and then headed out from there! The first set up was in a cool church across the street from the studio on the main strip off Broadway.
Angie wanted stain glass so we went for something that was classy, but definitely non-traditional.
Then we went across the street again for a quick grab shot of this really cool building!
Here is a behind the scenes shot of this set up with me, the make up artist Amy to the far right, and our awesome assistant Alice Lee holding the light. My incredibly hot wife is taking the picture and watching so that no cars run me over!!
Then we got a few city looking images while we were in the neighborhood.
We then headed to Bi-Centennial park for some earthy looking images and shot into the sunset. Ahhhh….
It was a great shoot and a really fun time! Thanks Angie for being so cool and so laid back! Keep on singin’ :)
