Album Cover

A group of local lads I know are building a good following locally in the clubs and pubs, performing a mixture of their original songs with cover versions of sixties and seventies classics. Meet 'TheRigbys'. 

I had suggested several months ago I'd be happy to do a promo shot for them, but it's taken this long for them to get together to take a few shots. In the wettest summer for years, I was hoping for rain soaked streets to bring a little bit of urban mood to the shots. As it turned out, the day was sunny... typical. 

So I took them to an underpass, attempting to re-create a little seventies grunge in the 'look' or feel. The mixed lighting of daylight and fluorescent in the tunnel gives a suitably sickly feel and I think they are pretty happy with how it all turned out. Hand held, using the Leica M9 with 35mm Summicron.
