Band portraits, group shots--whatever you call them, bands need pictures of everybody together. Sometimes they need to be shot on a white background, sometimes on location is more appropriate. My preference is to shoot in a cool location, but there's nothing like the basic white background for ultimate flexibility on your website, banners or even CD covers.
As I mentioned elsewhere, I enjoy doing CD covers, posters and banners for musicians because they are creative. You know the image you want to project; you know what sort of picture would suit your CD cover or mp3 release. Most of the shots you see below were conceived by the artists themselves; I just pointed the camera. If that sort of collaborative effort sounds good to you, write me. I keep my rates low for musicians, so don't be afraid to ask.
