Just recently, the celebrated Czech-American photographer – Walter Novak – shot some photographs for me to help me promote a better image around my music. Walter is an award winning photographer who has worked with the stars and so, honestly, it was an honor to work with him. The results I think are startling. His concept was to take the photos at dusk with a long shutter speed capturing a moving Brno tram in the background along with graffiti and so on. It gives a central-eastern European feel while also making me look quite the rocker! I am very pleased with the results.
Last night, we completed the second part of the assignment – to take some closer stills of me for my book promotion work. He chose another location on the edge of Brno and I am looking forward to the results. To see Walter work is incredible. His entire personality shifts into high gear as he works to get the shot he saw in his head. He makes you work too! Shifting poses and so on. But, it was fun.
Having moved back to Brno from the US recently, Walter is now ready to get back to work. So, if you are looking for a serious photographer to work with for your publicity shots or whatever, I can recommend him. If interested, please contact me initially and I will put you in touch with him. Imagine, being photographed by a man who shot Bowie, The Boss, Mick Jagger, Hilary Clinton, President Obama and many. many more…..
