Some of you might know them. You might remember them from the promo photos that I posted a few pages back. For those of you who don’t know them… Here are the winners of the Best Alternative Rock Band at the 2nd Annual Pittsburgh Music Awards, Fist Fight in the Parking Lot…..
Band members – Jason Sichi, Johnnie “Metal” McCallough, Chris Ruane and Abby Krizner have been rocking stages in and around the Pittsburgh area for well over a decade. They decided to put Fist Fight together back in 2009 and haven’t looked back. About to release their first CD (2/25/12) under the Innervenus label, the band plans to expand their bookings into neighboring states and beyond. Rumor has it that some of my photos will be used in the CD’s packaging.
I have had the pleasure of knowing these four for a pretty long time. They were my first clients when I decided to turn my passion for photography into more than just a hobby.
A few months back Fist Fight played a show at Pittsburgh’s Mr. Small’s Theater, and yours truly was there with camera in hand. I captured some pretty cool photos of the band. Having the freedom to shoot from in front of, behind and even on stage made for some really cool shots. There was also a video crew there that evening, which created the video below.
The producer used some of my still photos in the video. So yes, this is just another item to slap into my resume. Keep your eyes and ears open. You never know when they might be playing at a venue near you. You might even see me lurking around the stage with a camera or two….
And here’s a link to the post about the promo shoot we did: Fist Fight Promo
As always…. Thanks for looking…
