Mortificator is a local thrash metal band that plays shows in the Minneapolis St. Paul area.  I met them after my husband’s band played a show with them.

During our shoot the band received the grand tour of Belle Plaine.  We hit up Veterans park, the tunnel beneath highway 169, a few back roads, and a cemetery!  Their shoot turned out very amazing, with just the right amount of edge.  The guys were all a joy to work with too.  Shoots like this are really enjoyable for me.  I get to flex my creative muscles, try out new things and play with location lighting.  I end up using the techniques I come up with during band shoots in other areas of photography like weddings.  Even though the subject matter is different, the lighting conditions tend to be similar.

If you are a fan of metal music, follow the band on Facebook:
