This guy is no stranger to the blog. Jonathan King’s latest venture, Mad Manhattan, is a rock/R&B band from right here in Oklahoma City. Check out the Facebook Page to listen to the first single recently released, recorded and produced entirely by Jon. (His many talents don’t end there.) More to come on the blog from a full promo shoot happening soon. For now, some favorites from a recent speed studio session:

The Afters
September 17th, 2012
Oklahoma State Fairgrounds
Oklahoma City






Had a great time shooting my very creative friends’ wedding! Jeff is an OKC firefighter, so he and Marianne used an awesome antique firetruck as their “getaway car” after their wedding and reception at the modern event space Sector 614 in downtown OKC. Super photogenic couple!











The Weathered may be a new name, but it’s members are no stranger to the Oklahoma City music scene. Tyler, Shaun, Jon, Josh, and Adam have been in their share of rock outfits, so I’m excited to see where this takes them! I recently had the opportunity to do a promo shoot for the guys- here’s a few favorites!



Most of our time at WPPI was consumed with rushing around to classes and browsing the trade show, but toward the end of our trip, we had time built in to explore Las Vegas and some surrounding areas and attractions. (Unfortunately Carly had to fly home before this part.)

The Neon Boneyard Sign Museum is easily my favorite place in Las Vegas. They are an organization that rescues and sometimes restores retired neon signs. It’s an expensive endeavor, so to fund it, they give guided history tours through the sign yard. They also allow client shoots there which I’d love to have the opportunity to do- so if anyone wants book a shoot in this location, you’ll have the coolest pictures around! It would be awesome for engagements, bridals, band promos, etc. In fact, this has been a music video location for the likes of Jimmy Eat World, The Killers, and more! Contact me for destination shoot pricing! The photo of me was snapped by Catie Bartlett.








After our tour, Lisa, Catie, and I decided to hang around downtown Las Vegas and see what else we could take pictures of. It was a really cool area, and we landed in front of a wall with a fun pattern. Below are some more Lensbaby photos, as well as various shots from the day. Photo of me by Catie Bartlett.






The Dangerous Summer
War Paint Tour
March 15th, 2012
The Conservatory, Oklahoma City, OK

I saw this group for the first time when they opened for The Secret Handshake about three years ago now. I was so impressed that I bought their current CD at the time, Reach for the Sun, and it didn’t leave my car CD player for two months. Since then, they’ve been back to OKC twice and have found a permanent place in my heart. I could gush some more.. but I’ll just show you some photos from their most recent show instead! The Conservatory continues to keep me on my toes with it’s less than substantial lighting, so forgive me!

Lovedrug
March 12, 2012
The Conservatory, OKC

There are some bands that I think I could listen to live for hours. Lucky for me, Lovedrug continues to make stops in Oklahoma City at The Conservatory. Despite the low lighting challenges, I pulled a few faves from the show to share!

They just released a new album, which they are touring now. Check out some of the singles on Spotify:
