This past September I was hired by Eleven Seven Music to photograph and create the album artwork for heavy metal band Drowning Pool’s new album, “Resilience.” I was presented with a great opportunity to produce work for the band that would not only showcase them in a dynamic new way, but also push new personal boundaries within my work and challenge me to create something exceptional.
