Shooting Paper Moon

A couple of Sundays back I had the pleasure of shooting the press photos of local Winnipeg band Paper Moon. We got quite a bit accomplished within the tight confines of the Allison and Chris' living room. In our planning session, they came up with 3 concepts - Pajama Party, Board Game, and Back to School. They wanted to emulate some old school (c. 1970s) Sears/Eatons catalogues. The resulting images after post processing were actually a little more Norman Rockwell(ish), but pleasing nonetheless... I think if I fade the images more, I might further be able to emulate a worn 70s catalogue look. So far the reviews have been good - I'm happy, and the band's happy...Thanks to the band for being so cooperative, to Tannis Legary (a great makeup artist with whom I've had ongoing collaborations), and to Leela. AND before I forget, Paper Moon will be playing a fund raiser show at the Park Theatre (698 Osborne Street) on Thursday, December 4, 2008. Message me here or go to to get tickets.


  1. Tix are $8 in advance and $10 at the door...

  2. That's what I thought when I first saw the Paper Moon photo set too, Norman Rockwell all the way.
