Recently I’ve had this burning desire to start shooting music videos, its something I wanted to do as a teenager, but the desire eventually went away. So it was perfect timing that one of my favorite photographers, Sarah McColgan recently shot a music video. The visuals are quite stunning, and it has inspired me to go out there and start shooting.
For me, the visuals are how I’d anticipate a photographer to shoot a video, more than how a DP trained in film would, and I think that’s why I like it. There are (to me) just a differences as to how someone who is used to shooting stills may frame and approach it; I think that really works in shorter formats, like a music video. Anyway, check out the video, the song ain’t too shabby either, it’s Pledge Allegiance by Ro James.
