I’m very pleased to announce that my friend and client Cameron Carpenter has just been nominated for a Grammy Award in the category of solo instrumentalist without orchestra for his album Revolutionary (Telarc).

In case you couldn’t tell from the photo, Cameron is a rockstar on the organ. So, next time you feel like having your mind blown, take in his live performance or pick up his album on Amazon.

About the Photo:

This shot was taken at approximately 2:00AM at the end of an all-day shoot that included multiple wardrobe changes and several locations. The backdrop is the massive Marshall & Ogletree virtual organ at Trinity Church, Wall Street.

Cameron was lit by a single Alienbees B800 flash unit with a 30 degree honeycomb grid positioned high and camera right. Nikon D200, f/11, 1/60, ISO200.

The project was shot in conjuction with Randy Tay of Randy Tay Photography and produced by Susan Slaymayer of Slaymaker Special Projects.
