Samurai Pizza Cats

Published March 9th, 2012

This is the beginning of a documentary project of a ska band that goes by the name of Samurai Pizza Cats. I will gradually be posting my favorite shots from each time I photograph them. By the end of this project, I will have pictures of practice sessions (and parties) in their campus-famous house, promotional shoots, photos from live shows, and from recording sessions. I have a feeling that by the end of this project, it will be one of my favorite projects I have done yet.

I prefer taking portraits of people that define their personality by letting them feel comfortable and not posing them in front of the camera. For this series, I placed several subjects in their own environments, asked them all the same question, and took a picture while they were thinking and responding to my question while recording their answers. I explored the idea of taking pictures at moments where my subject is least expecting it and while they are concentrating on answering the question and not on the camera.
