A Sunday some weeks ago we rented a cinema theatre in Denmark and photographed all day and evening for the new Klaus & Servants live show and upcoming CD
Some wait all life for their big breakthrough - for someone to discover them. Klaus Strandholm of Klaus & Servants knew since he was five and got his first guitar that he wanted to be a pop star. Not a very popular announcement in the little town where he grew up, but nevertheless he has been a household name in Denmark for the last thirty years.
Playing their own compositions and a variety of cover versions from the fifties and onward, the band travel intensively every week throughout all Denmark. On this Sunday we set up the whole new show scene in a cinema theater only for the camera to record.
The new show will be with an opera singer, an Elvis look-a-like and three other song talents - and not to be forgotten: A handful of dancers. Their first show will be in Aarhus on March 17 and is also being recorded for TV4 Denmark.
The whole photo shoot was done with the Leica M9 and 50mm and 90mm lenses, using available light from the bands usual light rack and follow spot. The only camera for real music photography ...
