A photograph can instantly say what a thousand words struggle to convey.
When I think of some of my favourite music I am instantly reminded of the iconic images which have become associated with the band or musician…Penny Smiths great photos of The Clash,the brilliant monochrome shots of Miles Davies,The Beatles early photos,The Stones in stark black and white,the technicolour shots of Syd Barret era Pink Floyd.In recent years the photographic image has become even more important to music.Think of Lady Ga Ga,Jesse J and any of the poppets in the charts and their music comes with an instant and memorable visual image.
At LMM we know the value of a good photo to sell a band.
It is the first thing a client visiting our site sees and it is the band with an interesting photograph which usually gets the most attention from clients.Of course they need to back this photo up with great sound files and a performance history that allows us to supply them with confidence but it is the photo which is the first step on the road for the client.
