CLIENT: Lagos Roots Afrobeat Ensemble
CREATIVE DIRECTION: The objective was to create a dance-hall-like environment, with the band playing for their fans. I wanted the imagery to feel like the concert was taking place somewhere tropical / exotic. The location procured for the shoot in Oakland CA helped create the vibe. Lighting, location and a little booze helped everyone turn my idea into reality. The shoot was a success, everyone was happy with the imagery. “That was just like a concert in Lagos (Nigeria),” said Geoff (the leader of the band). That was the best compliment I could receive!
