    Shooting An Album Cover from Concept to Finish

    Big thanks to both Scott and Brad for inviting me back to be the guest blogger this week!

    This past September I was hired by Eleven Seven Music to photograph and create the album artwork for heavy metal band Drowning Pool’s new album, “Resilience.” I was presented with a great opportunity to produce work for the band that would not only showcase them in a dynamic new way, but also push new personal boundaries within my work and challenge me to create something exceptional.

    The Longest Exposure: The Artist Is The Camera Hi everyone! Corey Barker here to share with you a behind the scenes look at my recent illustration and how artists must observe and interpret similar to the way a camera does. I have always been fascinated with photography and how a camera captures an image. The word photography itself means to draw with light. A photographer determines, by way of the settings on the camera, how much light will enter the lens and the glass in the lens will bend those light waves into focused beams which will then hit the film at the back of the camera for a specified amount of time burning the image into the film. Of course, that was in the old days of film photography. Today the process is very much the same however instead of the light hitting…

    A big “Thanks” to Scott and Brad for allowing me to share this shoot with you guys. I am a music and advertising photographer currently living in Nashville, by way of New Orleans, LA. I recently had the privilege of photographing The Band Perry for the Billboard Magazine cover story. In this blog I’ll share my experience, thought process and some of the technical details behind this shoot. Like most editorial shoots, I was given a fair amount of creative freedom. That freedom provided a great opportunity to showcase ideas and unique vision aligned with the image of the magazine and, in this case, the particular image of the talent as well. It’s someone’s job to brand the band and have them seen in a certain light so it’s always very important to understand what such branding might consist of visually. As much as…

    The Human Condition Life has its way of weeding out the weak, fragile and insecure. The problem is, there is not a person on this planet that is not to some degree exactly that. The truth is, the human condition puts us at a disadvantage from the very start. It is said that if you are lost in the wilderness, the first thing you need to do is recognize you are lost. The great philosopher singer/song writer Paul Simon once wrote, “I am the first to admit it, but the last to know.” As a general rule, we are often totally oblivious to our human condition. When it is challenged, we panic, come undone and often just give up. But there is hope. The single greatest reason we fail in fulfilling our dreams and succeeding in the marketplace is the fear of rejection. To…

    Ok, so when you get asked to be a guest blogger for Scott, one of the first things to do is check out the competition and see what others have done. The top blog posts as far as comments and reshares have been from Peter Hurley… Seen here hamming it up in our studio: Photos by Pete Collins And Zack Arias’: Photo by Zack Arias I wanted to be considered as insightful and popular as them. So I did some studying on what they did to get such a good response and it became quite obvious… It is all about the hair! If I am going to get the greatest response and win the top honor as the “coolest, hippest blogger on earth,” I am going to have work the hair angle hard. So without further ado… I give you Peter Bob Ross Arias!…

    With my most humble sincerity, I would like to thank Scott and Brad for their friendship and for allowing me to share a brief window into my life as of late. I would also like to thank my friend Robby Klein for the photo of me above. He is a fantastic photographer in Nashville that you should totally check out. If you’re anything like me, long blog posts just end up getting skimmed through for the highlights (or just to look at the photos) so I’ll try to keep this as A.D.D. –friendly as possible. For those of you not familiar with me and my work, allow me to introduce myself. Two and a half years ago I wrote my first guest blog post here and was able to share my life and photographic journey up until that point.  A lot has changed since…
