Ashentide – A Female Fronted Symphonic Metal Band

Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce to you, the symphonic metal band Ashentide!  This band hails from Los Angeles and features one very special woman on keyboards.  This lady, Anastasia, Fury of the Tundra, is my sister-in-law, and last December invited me to Los Angeles to photograph her band.   I was completely ecstatic and excited to make the journey down to see my brother and his wife and meet all these other talented musicians whom have come together to form Ashentide.  We set aside a date last December for the photo shoot at a location Anastasia had scouted just north of Malibu and off we went.  

Please support Ashentide on their Facebook page, Twitter, MySpace and their website.  They are truly an up and coming band with a plethora of talent to share their musical gifts with the world.  A big thank you to Sarah Wong for makeup, and Jehangir Tajik for assiting on the photo shoot.

I present to you, Ashentide!

Portrait, Branding, Fitness & Studio PHOTOGRAPHER

Fueled by equal parts Earl Grey tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
