The guys of Funeral Students (Charlie, Rob, and Ken) met me for an awesome photo shoot at Fort Hancock – a former United States Army fort with gun batteries and crumbling barrack homes still on site. The fort is located on Sandy Hook, the shoreline of my youth with multiple beaches that I still enjoy every summer. I was excited to show the guys around as they had never visited before.
As much as I love photographing bands, what I love even more is getting to know them and sharing laughs together. Charlie, Rob, and Ken were enthusiastic, positive, hilariously funny, and a true joy to be around! We took plenty of my favored “serious” shots, and I’m glad the guys threw in some silly poses as well because that’s totally who they are! I am so thrilled for Funeral Students this month in particular, as their new album, Ghost Ocean, is being released on February 23. Show your support by attending their album release show at Brighton Bar the same day with Wynward, The Barbarrians, and Shiwan Khan.
Thank you, Funeral Students, for spending a lovely (albiet cold!) afternoon in front of my camera!
