Something different from the usual weddings I post here; music photography.
As part of a long term project I am documenting Skaraman as they practice, gig and in this post record an album.
Skaraman is Mike and James. I first met Mike at a wedding I was photographing 2 years ago since he is also a registrar. Their music is Ska/Reggae and with songs featuring current topical messages with a somewhat upbeat and very danceable rhythm.
Yesterday they were at Mayfield Studios, continuing to record their album with sound engineer Gregg. Interesting to see how much work goes into music production, a process I can relate to albeit for visual work. Photography during recordings is usually only allowed between takes, the studio has to be completely silent and shutter clicks are very much unwelcome. Thankfully I use Sony cameras for all my work and they have a very handy electronic shutter mode which makes the camera completely silent enabling stealthy capture of the true story as it happened.
One day I will post the bigger story as I continue to document Skaraman's rise to fame! As a quick insight to this continuing work and to promote this brilliant band here is a snippet of their day as i caught Mike adding the vocal tracks in the recording studio yesterday.
Catch Skaraman at a live gig via their facebook page. And keep an eye out for a new album coming soon!
