Andrew Jackson Jihad Portrait

with one comment

Sean and Ben from local folk-punk spectacle Andrew Jackson Jihad asked me to shoot a portrait of them for valley concert calendar The Phoenix Agenda. The publication is still pretty new and I hadn’t heard of it or saw it, but they wanted straight 11×17 vertical with layout space at the top, and the guys don’t like posing.

Since they met while working at the Willow House making coffee, I figured it would be fitting to have them drinking coffee in their place of choice, Sean’s apartment at The Laird. They are super nice and most comfortable in front of the camera when they can just bullshit with one another and smoke cigarettes, so that’s what they did.

Little did I know, this mural was on May’s cover. Good thing its not my favorite one.

And just for fun;

This one’s a little soft :(
