They’ve been growing as musicians for over a year now, perfecting their sound, adding members and fine-tuning their skills. I know this because Clayton is the drummer. Hundreds of hours have gone into the creation of this band, and choosing the name, probably took 3 months – some good suggestions and some really terrible ones. But after a year of hiding away keeping most everything they do a secret, they are finally breaking into the world. Starting with a video in the “Tiny Desk” competition and now scheduling gigs, Frequency Response is making their debut and I’m excited to share the first images that give visuals to their sound and energy.
While there are still many details to work out for their finalized band look and album shoot they wanted to get the ball rolling with photos to post to social media and start making their presence in the music scene. We started with an in-studio photo shoot to show off what these guys are really all about – the sound. From set-up to sound checks to finally getting to hear their music, you could tell that these guys know music and care about all the details
I floated around the room for the first half of their in-studio practice trying to capture their instruments as well as getting them in action. I Focused more on the individual members and instruments and finding the details that you might miss if you were seeing them live. I stuck with a single flash and my 50mm lens to get all the images for this basic shoot. While we have another shoot in the works in the coming months for their album photos that will better represent who they are as a band, these photos were a great way to introduce them to the music scene.
So without further ado, I present, Frequency Response.
