Some fun pics of SKINDRED.

For these pics I used my Canon EOS I, glass 85mm f/1.2, a few rolls of Kodak TRI-X and ba da bing...

Isn't that boring? I'll save you the torture of "I used this specific strobe light and ya da ya da" it was essentially your basic studio set up.

I will say this, these snaps were taken towards the end of the shoot.

The Slash props were put away, many Corona's had been consumed, many laughs had been had, and we'd made are way through the following albums on the iPod

The Cult - Love
Sex Pistols - Never Mind the Bollocks
The Clash *self titled*
The Bad Brains - Build A Nation
Some random Frank Sinatra...
The Crystal Method, I forget which album, it might have been Vegas...

The last time I saw the Crystal Method I thought my life was going to end. Me, Ken from The Crystal Method, there tour manager and a security guard (Bobby) from The Water St Music Hall piled into a truck and pointed it towards the closest strip club.

The ride of death.

80 miles an hour the whole way to the club. Ken had an 8th of blow on his lap which ended up on the floor after Bobby cut a corner to sharp and hit a huge pothole...I remember thinking, perfect place for that stuff...
