C.K. & The Rising Tide | Troy, NY

Updated: Sep 10, 2019

We hit the streets of Troy, NY in search of new promotional photos for this indie-rock/Americana band.

C.K. & The Rising Tide

There was an unique task at hand on this sunny Saturday morning, capture the essence of the band as a whole and capture the spirit of each individual member.

The band as a whole has this unapologetically themselves attitude that is both fun but also incredibly hard working.

Overall all we wanted to capture their hardworking demeanor yet still get a glimpse of that feel good spirit they all embody.

Meeting with the Band

We started prep for this photo shoot by meeting and understanding what the over brand of the band was and what each individuals "brand" was. This was an awesome brainstorming session that really gave life to the whole photo shoot!


The writer. The thinker. His intrigue doesn't come from being an "in your face" front-man, but rather being preoccupied with his thoughts.


The guitarist who can rock out hard, yet is still very approachable.


Relatively extroverted, and definitely prefers not to fit in any box. But always finds depth within the violin.


The one with the mysterious personality.


Always prepared. The calming force. Undeniably reliable.

I've had the pleasure of working with C.K. & The Rising Tide on numerous occasions for both photo and design projects and each time they are always so great to work with. They are exactly as described, fun yet know how to get to work! A big thank you to the band & Ambassador Music Group for allowing me to capture these images!
