Eilen Jewell

There are many important things in my life and I feel very fortunate when I have the opportunity to photograph them.  NASCAR (isn’t one of them – boy I wish I could find those photos…) but good food, travel and music are most definitely on the list.  I recently had the pleasure of photographing Eilen Jewell a Boston-based singer/songwriter for promo shots that will be used on an upcoming cd slated for release in summer 2011.  The Narrows Center for the Arts was kind enough to host the shoot and Eilen was a joy to work with (that is until we all got stuck while shooting on the freight elevator).  And even then she was great, just a little more nervously so.

The Word in the UK described her as “A voice of real distinction [that] manages to transcend some powerful influences and pierce the fog long enough for her own point of view to emerge.” Check her out if you have a moment.
