How does Jonathan Thorpe shoot one of the country most famous bands….? Neon Trees Photoshoot with BTS video and Lighting Diagram
A good friend of mine, Dustin Whitlow, has asked me last week to shoot some video of the band Neon Trees at the 9:30 club in Washington DC for Nylon Magazine.

I had everything ready and tested by the time the band got there, so I already knew what to expect which is a huge benefit of arriving early to a shoot.
Always plan ahead when dealing with a high profile client. The fasted you can produce a solid image, the better. You want to be remembered for how good a job you did in a short period of time, not for how awkward and slow you were.
