Los Angeles Session Guitarist | Photoshoot | Downtown LA

Los Angeles Session Guitarist | Photoshoot – Downtown Los Angeles

I have longer hair! So time for the obligatory new photoshoot (handy for website/auditions etc) after flying to Los Angeles!

Dawn Bowery (www.dawnboweryphotography.com) did such a fantastic job on last year’s shoot, so I hired her again! (No pressure Dawn). She delivered the goods though! Hurrah!

The first location was at an old historical house (hence the indoor shots), then rolled on an abandoned building Downtown where murderers definitely don’t store their victims corpses in cold storage. It was good fun and we nearly got beaten up by the arts police (not really).

Also “mega” thanks to my friends Ken and Bobby for helping out.

Los Angeles Session Guitarist | LA Update

Los Angeles Session Guitarist | LA Update 2012

They said “Make an update, or else the bunny rabbit gets it!”  So here’s my update (no bunny rabbits were harmed during this update).

I’ve been in LA for a while now.  In my first week I was fortunate enough to check out The Paramour Mansion which is an amazing place.  The interior design is the best I’ve seen in LA.  I also met U2’s producer Mark Howard who was very cool.  Been auditioning lots for tours and even though August is pretty dry, I’ve been recording lots.  A few weeks ago, I recorded on an 80’s sounding Cure-ish track which someone required guitars for at a studio in Laurel Canyon.  That was fun.  Randomly, the actor who played Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies was in the studio the day before.  In other Laurel Canyon action, a “party scene” was being filmed in the Hollywood Hills and I was asked to play some rock guitar during said scene and basically play guitar solos.  T’was fun!

I was recently offered some potential acting work and needed some “emergency headshots” all info of which can be found on my Facebook page here.  I also had a great new music photo shoot and will post the pictures as soon as I get them.  On a separate note, I have been asked to “act” as the guitarist in a band for a film.  Will see what happens, but that’s all I’m saying for now.

Been recording lots for a joint project with my friends Giac (Oscar nominee!) and Steve Sidelnyk (ex Madonna, Seal, Annie Lennox etc).

A few nights ago, I met Dizzy Reed from Guns N’ Roses which was fun.  He and his wife were extremely nice.  Check out the Instagram (follow me on there!) photo here.

I also got to hang out with Ioan Gruffudd (Fantastic Four/Titanic/Black Hawk Down/Horrible Bosses), top bloke.  Check it out: here.

Bye bye till next time,
