Mandolin Orange \\ Durham, NC

As a musician photographer from North Carolina I get to photograph and make art with many local indie musicians, rock stars and eclectic creatives.  

One of the highlights of my musician photography was to be able to shoot Emily and Andrew; the duo that makes up Mandolin Orange.

I took them to a parking garage in Durham, NC where the light is consistently lovely and the acoustics for sound are eerie as hell. 

I knew that I wanted to have them both sing an "a capella" version of one of their songs during the shoot so I stopped them about halfway through, had them face each other and they sang this hauntingly beautiful version of "Lonesome Whistle".   It took a few tries to get the sound and shots that I was envisioning but I'm pleased with the process and how it ended up.
