The Gazette’s Enjoy section and the Billings Symphony teamed up to put on a Country Idol contest. The contestants performed with the symphony on Sunday, and now people can vote on the videos to see who will get to perform an entire show with the Symphony next season. I shot the portraits and videos. If you’d like to vote you can do so HERE.
Here is a video I shot of Doug Balmain performing his song ‘Home’
This week I shot two pretty amazing individuals. The first was Christian Parrish Takes The Gun aka Supaman. Hes a member of the Absalooke (Crow) Nation. He was invited to this years Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade to Fancy Dance on one of the floats. He is also a pretty talented rapper, so I am hoping to get him back in the studio to perform some of his music in the near future. In the video Christian gives describes the origins of Fancy Dance and then demonstrates his skills.
The second is another Wyoming country artist, Doug Balmain, who like fellow Wyoming artist Teka Brock shuns the pop country sounds of Nashville to create more heartfelt and personal music.
These were both shot with a Canon 5d MKIII and a Canon 70D. A GoPro Hero 2 was also used on Doug’s video.
