We're about to do some photo shoots for promo packages and haven't been terribly impressed with the results we've gotten in the past (we've done some ourselves, other times we used local artists/pro photographers). Trying to do some research/brainstorming ahead of time to get the most out of the next shoot. Any suggestions? I've been trying to browse the net for sample promo pics and haven't been finding much. Checking out some photography sites, and the content is pretty lacking there too. Any of you folks know of some sources for browsing to get some ideas at least? Some kind of inspiration? I think we need to give the photographer some idea of the feel/look/vibe we are going for. Getting tired of the standing-around-Olan Mills-posing routine. The only thing that's yielded anything useful at all so far has been perusing sites of bands that we admire or have been compared to. We're not trying to copy anything, just get some ideas of what can be accomplished other than brickwall/railroad-tracking it. Wish I was more creative! Any other ideas to get the muse musing?
