Through The Lens of My iPhone - Volume One
I'm no Jesse Cahill or Chad Anderson when it comes to artistic drum photography, but it's amazing what one can do with an iPhone, a clever app called Instagram and a bit of creative inspiration while in the moment:
"Getting Ready for The Gig" - Setting up the house drums at the Beatniq Jazz & Social Club with the Johnny Summers Quartet.
"Brushes, Sticks & Well Worn Drum Heads" - An overview of the evening's instruments.
"Loading In" - Outside the Market Collective in Kensington on a warm and sunny Saturday afternoon.
"Dark Wood on Light Wood" - My Djembe stands in my living room.
"Out of The Cases and Ready to Go..." - Yellow Premier drums, Yamaha copper snare drum and drum pad all ready for an evening practice session.
"Taking a Break" - A shot taken between dance routines during an afternoon modern dance class at the University of Calgary.
"Tools of the Trade" - Everything is ready to go.
"Inspiration" - The Master's are watching/listening...
"Dark Vibes/Bright Music" - I love the contrast between the bars of the vibraphone, the sheet music and the orange mallets resting on the keyboard.
"The Force Will Be With You, Always" - Sidewalk Yoda says hello on 8th Avenue NE during a morning stroll.
