Judy Collins…!!!

When Ronnie Weil called and offered me this one, all I could say was, “Wow!”. For five decades…my entire life…she’s been making music…beautiful music. Now Judy is recording a new CD that is tentatively titled “Duets with Guys”, an album that will feature her signing with Jeff Bridges, Jimmy Buffett, Don McLean and Kris Kristofferson, and Alexandra Wolfe was writing a profile on her for the Wall Street Journal. Here is how our day went…

And our shooting day begins…



We also had a Journal video crew following us around…



Here are a couple of final images…

For the next setup, I wanted to do something dark & dramatic, and more etherial. And while it doesn’t look like much with Kaz in place…


…once Judy stepped on set, things got dialed in pretty fast…

  1. Thanks for sharing the interview/comments and your great photos of Judy Collins. I’d love to see her in concert, but I don’t imagine she’ll be appearing at “The Jube.” here, so I will wait for the release of her new album.

  2. impressive as usual. nice lighting choices, cool pic of you both at the end… working the x100 of the BTS shots, eh. love that camera. thanks for sharing, your work is so consistently excellent.
    keep going!

  3. Is all the fill coming from the back of the v-flats or were there additional lights?

    The only light was the top light…all the fill came from the foam core and a small silver card right in front of me on the floor. BT
