Creating Track Artwork For Band White Eskimo

White Eskimo – Game Time by Ian Thraves Photography

A few months ago I was asked by band manager and TV presenter Yvette Fielding to shoot the artwork for the up-and-coming band White Eskimo.

I have worked with White Eskimo a few times in the past (see blog history), so I’m familiar with the band members but this time the requirements for the shoot were much more specific and included detailed instructions and mood boards, as the images required were to be considered for use with their latest track release, Game Time.

I’m happy to say the images were well received by the band’s American music publicists and one of the images was used as the official track artwork. The image was created using a white paper background and two Elinchrom flash heads fitted soft boxes and shot using a Nikon D810 camera and 35mm and 50mm Nikon lenses.
