Press shoot with The Dunwells

Caught up with my old friends The Dunwells at the start of the summer to shoot some press shots for their forthcoming EP, Colour My Mind.

I met the guys at their rehearsal spot in Leeds as a practice was coming to an end - it was great to have a soundtrack whilst I set my gear up! Once the rehearsal had drawn to a close, we cleared some gear out of the way to utilise a large wooden boarded wall at the back of the room. The wooden panels gave the shoot a very clean, bright feel which we are all really happy with. We tried a couple of different setups against the wooden wall, before moving on to a different location.

The second location was a communal area within the rehearsal space, which had a much more 'homely' feel. The lounge-like space was made predominantly from repurposed palettes, with some additional lights and furnishings to feel a bit more welcoming. This area was a lot darker, so had to really push my lighting and ISO to ensure I got a decent exposure without killing the tones.

It was great to catch up with the guys - having not seen them for a good few years, we had a fair bit to catch up on: lineup changes, musical style, management and label changes, an awful lot has happened since our last shoot on location of the "Follow The Road" video shoot.

Colour My Mind EP is out now on iTunes and Spotify, as are the tickets for their March 2018 tour. Go check them out if you get chance!
