We were hired by Matador Records to photograph Car Seat Headrest for promotion of their acclaimed album Twin Fantasy & accompanying world tour. The initial photoshoot took place during their first tour date at the Rialto theater in Bozeman, MT, where we created a promotional video for the song Nervous Young Inhumans to accompany the album release. For this video we developed a new frame transition technique utilizing 10fps still images on the Sony A7RIII that utilized image artifacts to transition the frames. Late in July, we traveled to Seattle to photograph some portraits before their headlining performance at the Timber Music Festival, and accompanied the band to Portland for their stop at the historic Crystal Ballroom. The images were licensed to promote their tour dates in Europe, North America, & Australia, and were highlighted on their social media accounts and in press coverage of the band for the tour & album’s promotion.
