This is my favorite studio shot that I did in the metal era because A) all the band members were into it, and it showed up well graphically and B) it demonstrates how different, and fine-art oriented my photographic style was from the rest of my competition of that era.

My way: Naturalistic posing with assorted hot spots of visual interest, be the people's expressions or a prop or two, but plain background to highlight the people. And yet they still look as bad ass as they wanted to appear. My competition were into "Mount Rushmore" posing, everyone lined up in a row and looking solemnly pretentious. Ironies: the Mount Rushmores continue to work more than I do; the drummer formerly was in The Dogs

They were Trip Trigger, 2.0. The 1.0 and 3.0 versions are above and below. Trip himself still rocks with Hillbilly Prophet (HERE) with a soulful, hard rock unholy mix of Gene Clark, C&W and Pink Floyd!
