This past weekend, Synthia and I photographed Erica Perry at one of our favorite places; Buzzard’s Paradise. Erica is a super-talented country singer that has been performing around the metroplex for a few years. We’ve worked with her in the past on various projects which included some promo material for her EP, some images of her band and also some engagement photography.
This time around we shot her bridals and some new promotional photos for her. We figured that our friend’s ranch, Buzzard’s Paradise, was the perfect setting for these images. Of course, I can’t share the bridal photos now, but I can share some of the other photos we shot. A good friend of mine just recently let me borrow his Hasselblad 503CW with an 80mm & 50mm lens, so naturally, I used the hell out of that bad boy on this day. I also used some Impossible Project PX-70 COOL with a Polaroid SX-70.
A few images from this shoot …
Erica just recently made it to the top 24 of The CW’s The Next television show and this Thursday (9/13), the Dallas episode airs at 8PM. From what I understand, once the producers of The Next whittled down the competition to 24, they toured around to 6 cities to listen to the remaining contestants. Each of the cities had the audience vote and the winner of that particular city is announced when the show airs.
Of course, myself and everybody else I know hopes she wins and makes it to the next round, BUT if she doesn’t, there’s still a chance for her to make it to the finals. You can vote her into the wild card spot on September 20th.
Help support a local rising artist and watch The Next this Thursday night at 8pm! We’re keeping our fingers crossed!!
