So now that Motion City Soundtrack has released their new album title and everything, I can post a few new pictures! Back in late December, Joe Lemke called me up to help him out on this shoot for Motion City’s new album cover.
Ultimately, MCS decided to go a different direction for the cover, but we still did this awesome shoot with this girl Raven - who is actually in a couple of the band’s music videos. She’s also in that one Sing It Loud video with the pool… and the Alex Gaskarth guest vocals… yeah, that one.
First we headed over to Justin Pierre’s place to meet with him and Raven and go over outfits. Then we drove to this park in Minneapolis, and Joe shot Raven on this frozen baseball field with a chain link fence in the background. Raven was an absolute champion. I was wearing like 4 layers and gloves and I was FREEZING. Seriously, the chick is good.
Awesome videographer Shane Nelson took a bunch of video for a promo vid for Joe - you can see the final video a few posts ago on my tumblr here, I reblogged it from Joe’s blog.
It was an awesome day, but it was cold. Damn cold. This photo is of Justin and Joe in the foreground, and Raven in the back.
