Promotional photos for musicians and other peformers

I shoot promotional photos for bands, musicians, actors, magicians, comedians, and performers of all different types. All packages come with flexible licensing agreements that allow you almost unlimited use of the images you choose from your shoot.

“Kevin is a true artist, and a professional gentleman. My cabaret troupe was blown away with how he captured subtle expressions and deeper aspects of our characters. The final product speaks for itself. Very high quality, beautifully lit and true representations of his subjects. The hardest part is choosing which images we want—they're all so good!”

So what is it you're trying to say? Who are you portraying? What kind of mood are you setting? What type of emotion do you want to stir? These are all things I consider when shooting promotional photos for performers.

Live performances

I can be on location to shoot your live events. Price will vary according to location, duration, travel costs, etc. Please contact me for more information or to obtain a quote.

Hair and makeup

I work with a number of very talented and skilled hair and makeup artists. Even if you do your own hair and makeup every day, I recommend that you hire a professional for your photos. The pros know how to get your look "just right" for the camera. Makeup for photography is slightly different and requires more perfection than everyday makeup. The cost is generally around $120 per look per person for this service, with discounts for groups.

If you'd like to hire a hair and makeup artist, please allow me a week to coordinate the dates and make sure we can have someone available for you.
