In 2007, I was lucky enough to be involved with Bo Bice‘s sophomore album, See the Light. I co-wrote a couple of songs (including the title track) and played keyboards/guitar on it as well. When it came time to shoot the music video for the first single, “Witness,” I was asked to participate… my second music video!
During the shoot, I took time to take pictures of the whole set up. I also snapped a few shots of the other band members, one of which was the bassist, Luis Espaillat. He was sponsored by Trace Elliot, and asked if I could take a picture of him posing next to the amps. Out of the 3 or 4 pictures I took, this one stood out the most for me:
The next thing I know, Luis is telling me that his contact at Trace Elliot dug the picture so much that it’s being used in advertisements and stuff. I’ll be honest with you – I never actually saw the picture anywhere, but it’s cool to know that it was even considered. You never know what could happen, so never miss an opportunity to take pictures!
It was a most memorable day and I’m so grateful for being a part of it.
Here’s the video. The first time I appear is at 1:30… I’m the keyboard player in the back left. Then at 1:59, you can see my face! Sweet! Yeah, I went through the video to find all my spots.
Don’t judge me… you’d do the same if it were you.
