Photoshoot: Melissa Etheridge

Your favorite music photographer siblings had a great shoot with rock icon Melissa Etheridge as she celebrated the release of her tenth studio album, Fearless Love. Chris] and I did some stealthy backstage reportage of Melissa’s radio interview followed by a quick portrait shoot and coverage of an intimate performance for a lucky group of die-hard fans.

During the roughly 10 minutes allotted for portraits, we put together two simple on-location lighting setups consisting of the best DIY beauty dish design around and the Profoto Acute Ring flash.

This was a gig filled with highlights including Melissa’s 14 minute rendition of Like The Way I do (part 1 and part 2) and an absolutely incredible cover of Loraine Ellison’s Stay With Me.
