Jesse Canterbury, Portrait of a Jazz Musician

I’ve just completed editing the photos for Jesse Canterbury’s first shoot at Seattle Public Library. Jesse’s an up-and-coming jazz clarinetist (amongst other things) and plays with the Tom Baker Quartet as well as doing solo gigs. I chose the library for our shoot for several reasons: first, I thought the amazing modern architecture would be a great match for his uber-modern approach to jazz; second, it’s a beautiful space to work in, with tons of different spaces for taking interesting shots. We’re both delighted with the results – and these are a few of my personal favorites.
