Frank Rosaly's Bootstrap. Photo by Jim Newberry.

I shot this photo of Bootstrap (left to right: Jim Baker, Nathan McBride, Frank Rosaly, and Mars Williams) last Tuesday, right before the group played a gig at the Whistler, a few storefronts down from where we shot this. Bootstrap’s doing a residency every Tuesday this month; you still have a chance to catch tonight’s and next Tuesday’s performances.

I’ve also shot solo portraits of Rosaly, Baker, and Williams for my improv musician portrait series, and will be shooting McBride for that soon.

Mike Reed and Frank Rosaly for new jazz portrait project

I just started a new self-assigned project, shooting portraits of jazz musicians. Here are shots from the first two photo sessions: Mike Reed (top, shot last weekend on his rooftop) and Frank Rosaly (bottom photo, shot last week at the Hideout during a sound check).

If you’re a jazzer and up for having your picture taken, contact me.
