Kickstarting an album with Lucia Fasano (Portland band photographer)

I get a real kick out of hanging out with creative types, and Lucia Fasano is just about as creative as one can get. She’s a singer/songwriter, comedienne, cartoonist, actress, photographer and the list goes on. I met her through The Doubleclicks, the funny nerd folk duo I have been honored to photograph several times.

Lucia needed photos that reflected her quirky yet sincere style to promote her Kickstarter campaign. The crowdsourced funds would help release her album of mandolin-infused music. The songs range from soulful and serious to hopeful and cute, so she needed a lot of range out of the photos.   

We met at Council Crest Park, (the highest point in Portland) not for the sweeping views of the city, but for the huge radio tower, which we thought would be a good backdrop for an album called “Radio Silence.”

Thanks to her immense talent, the Kickstarter campaign got funded in less than 12 hours, and now the album is on its way to the masses. If you want to get a copy, there’s still time in the campaign to snag one.

And if you’re a creative type interested in fun photos to capture your style and personality, send me an email and let’s start planning something fun!
