The Wood Burning Savages
A little while back, I had a music promo shoot with the wondrous Wood Burning Savages. They’re a four piece alt-rock band from here in Derry. This was to be my second shoot with the fellas, the first being shot at a breakers yard a couple of years ago but it was time for a new shoot! I knew I wanted to get them to a forest (how obvious you might think) so after a little research, I came across Beltany Woods in Raphoe. There wasn’t much to go on image wise, but I could just about make out the lovely symmetry of the trees so knew this could be a good shout. I imagined it would be a little tricky placing four fellows in a dense area but I think we made good use of the space in the end up.
On the way back from the woods, we stopped off at a tunnel near Ardmore. I had spotted it on a way to a shoot a little while before and was instantly drawn to it. I had never noticed it before, surprisingly, as it’s quite large but I guess as I would never really be out that direction. I loved the colours and shadows and wanted to get use of it for some time so thought it would be a good contrast to the forest scene for the shoot.
