Last week it was Blink 182 and this week it’s Jesse James. I was commissioned to shoot the band in 2001. We spent all day in the studio and then towards the end of the shoot I came up with the idea of photographing the shoes of the band. The classic “Shoes” EP cover was born!

Hope you enjoy the i-Phone picture above and you can watch a video of the band here.

This week I have been editing pictures from the 90s and came across a set of Blink 182 contact sheets and a few work prints. I remember the night well. I was given just over an hour with the boys before a gig at the Borderline. I had seen them play at the London Astoria a few years before when Lagwagon was headling and became a fan. It was interesting to work with them at this time just before the band hit the mainstream here in the UK.

I will be printing a set up plus scanning them for my picture library soon. Enjoy the above i-Phone picture for now.
