I arrived early to the Motorco Music Hall in Durham, NC to see Touché Amoré perform. As I walked around the corner of the venue, lead singer Jeremy Bolm just happened to be exiting out the side door. We chatted briefly, and I asked him if I could make a portrait of him later. He agreed and we parted ways.
Walking back to the front of the venue, I struck up a conversation with a fellow photographer. She was a student who was planning to shoot the show with a old Pentax film camera. I found that fascinating.
We were only minutes into our conversation when Jeremy walked up to us and said that now would be a good time to make the portrait. This took me by surprise as I had intended to use the flash and reflector that were in my car. There was no time to get that extra gear, but everything turned out great.
Jeremy and I walked back around the corner where I first met him. The lighting conditions were actually really good. We were out of the direct sunlight, and the light bouncing off the concrete removed any need for a reflector. Being very conscious of respecting his time, I only took 5 or 6 quick shots.
Thank you Jeremy for being so generous of your time.
See my best pictures from the show.
