We’ve known the Williams brothers, Zealous and Lamont, for a few years now. They’re cool cats, and they also happen to be the local rap duo “Double Dragon.” We first met them about two years ago when they asked us to shoot some publicity stills for them. We shot more images of them for their marketing materiel, and we thought we’d share them with you.
Whenever I shoot publicity stills for bands, I always imagine how they would look framed as album covers. “Albums,” for those of you born after 1980, were how people used to store recorded music since the early days of the last century. I know that people dig digital music, but there was something about the physicality of a 12″ disk and its big, poster-like cover.
Anyway, I’ve always been a big fan of the cover art used by the Jazz record label Blue Note back in the 60′s. I thought it would be a cool little exercise to take some of the shots we have of Zealous and Lamont and create album art in the style of those old Jazz Albums.
Hey Lamont and Z, what do you think?
