One of the best and most enjoyable parts of my job as a content creator is when I get to work with bands I love.
This time I thought I would take you along so that we can share the excitement and a few – unavoidable when you’re working with me – silly moments.
So, just in case you find yourself in a similar situation here’s how to survive shooting a metal band.
Find the most remote forest you can possibly drive/hike to and let them loose. The steeper the better, it works to your advantage. If there’s snow even better.
Bring snacks and beer but do not let them know until the end of the photoshoot.
Remove all sorts of irresistible distractions such as food and props or you won’t be able to get the job done until the cows come home.
Control the weather and make it be windy so that they can let their hair down and express themselves in a fashionable, creative way. Or bring a wind machine- ’cause they’re worth it.
Practice your silly faces a week in advance to break the ice and make them laugh in between the way too serious -too-cool-for-school-snapshots.
5. Be relentless. Frame them, shoot them, hung them on the wall.

( very important tip)
Be alert and aware at all times. They will certainly, at some point try to murder or sacrifice you. Because as bind by the law, all metalheads are hardcore blood-thirsty satanists .
- No metalheads were harmed during this photoshoot.
