John Brennan: Musician, Drummer, Educator
Hello everyone! It’s time to post about my first session from 2013. John Brennan is a professional musician who specializes in teaching percussion. He also happens to work with my parents (both band directors), so, as a family friend, I was excited (and a little nervous) to take some portraits for his professional biographies.
He wanted to feature some of his high-quality instruments throughout this session, and I enjoyed having a chance to incorporate them in a number of different ways . Plus, Deep Ellum is a really great location given its variety of interesting backgrounds and settings.
The clouds were overcast for most of this session (which is great portrait lighting), but we were lucky enough to have a few minutes of sunlight! This allowed us to use the reflector in the next photo:
