I was super excited to get the opportunity to photograph Andy Bothwell, AKA Astronautalis, today. He's definitely one of my favorite musicians, and a super nice guy too. I first started listening to his music way back when I started working in photo checkout. His album The Mighty Ocean & Nine Dark Theaters was on the lab computer and I think I listened to it about 100 times that semester. He's heading out on tour through Europe with Tegan and Sara in a month or so, and I know great things are going to happen for him!
We shot these at the end of my street in the rain. Andy's from Seattle, so I find it pretty amusing that he came down to sunny LA, and had a rainy shoot. But then again I get excited to even shoot with clouds in the sky, so I'm really happy with how these came out.
