While they were on tour with The Academy Is… and We The Kings, I caught up with power-pop rockers Hey Monday for a quick photo shoot. Fresh off the “Bill and Trav's Bogus Journey Tour,” Hey Monday are blowing up arenas across the US with Fall Out Boy, Cobra Starship, All Time Low, and Metros Station.
First off, I just have to say how much fun it was to work with Hey Monday. This group was so down to earth and easy to work with, I was a fan even before seeing them rip up the stage. We were fighting some pretty strong wind during the end of the quick shoot, but the whole gang were troopers; just a pleasure to work with.
While the shoot time was based on the band's availability, we lucked out with a great slot just as the sun was setting, which allowed for some nice contrast between flash and ambient lighting.
I'm pulling for Hey Monday, and I'm excited to see that they're sharing stage with some great bands on their Spring tour. Cassadee, Elliot,Mike, Jersey, Bobby, and Alex: Good luck!
