Here's the story of how I got to take portraits of Ben Sollee:
I emailed him and asked him.
He said "sure".
I met him at Motorco Music Hall in Durham, NC. We shot a few portraits.
We walked down to Coco Cinnamon Coffee Shop and he bought me an espresso. I said "thanks". We shot some more portraits.
I did a long portrait of Ben. (click here to see that)
Ben and Jordon did their sound check inside of Motorco.
Afterwards, Ben and I walked up the street and did one of his "City Single" videos for their next show in Charlottesville, VA.
He gave my wife a t-shirt. She said "thanks".
