It is always a blast shooting Kevin Burdick (www.pianorockstar.com). He’s wildly expressive, has no inhibitions and is just an all around great guy. And I’m not just saying that. We’ve been friends since high school, made music together then and even some very screwy home movies and music videos. One of them included a scene that almost resulted in Kevin’s death, but instead, thanks to Kevin’s strong neck muscles, and our quick response, we ended up only with a massive rope burn around his neck. Come to think of it, I think we continued filming for a while before we realized he was in trouble. Flailing legs and a red face can either mean great acting, or eminent death…
I’m glad he’s still with us. He has made some great music since then and he’s always been a great friend.
So, this is a fun little set of images to wet your whistle. We first shot a few studio shots and Kevin went to town with the facial expressions. The best way to see them is in connection with each other. Tomorrow I am posting the fantastic images we got from the on-location portrait session, which include Kevin, various umbrellas, lots of wind and a vast empty landscape. Until then, enjoy this funny little set of photos and go listen to some of Kevin’s music at www.pianorockstar.com.
