Our Summer 2013 intern at The Highlander

I’d like to offer a special welcome to Emily McConville, our Summer 2013 intern at The Highlander! She’s graduating from Manual High School soon and worked as co-editor-in-chief on their Manual RedEye site and as copy director for the Crimson Yearbook. She’s already done her first story for us, “The Hungover Games and the Future of Barret Avenue.” Here’s Emily, interviewing Nitty Gritty co-owner Terri Burt, as shot through the store’s front window …

This was a last minute illustration for the April 2013 issue of The Highlander to illustrate a story about area businesses closing, called, “Revolving Doors: Opportunity Knocks, Economy Locks” by Cindy Lamb. The story leads with the imminent retirement of Jimmy Smith owner of Guitar Emporium and the future of the business and others in the Highlands.

Art on the Radio for The Highlander

Here’s a gallery of outtakes from shooting for Michael L. Jones’ October 2012 feature story in The highlander about Art+FM and their broadcast debut at the 2012 IdeaFestival in September.

Kevin Ratterman in La La Land

Kevin Ratterman took a moment away from work on La La Land, his new studio space on Lexington Avenue, for a portrait that appeared in The Highlander’s September feature on Louisville Music … (Click on the photo to see more images from Kevin Ratterman in La La Land.)

Producer Kevin Ratterman is constructing a new recording studio in a 6,800-square-foot building at 1139 Lexington Road. Ratterman says he expects the move from his former studio on Market Street will prove to be positive. “I want this to be a destination studio for local artists,” he says. The new studio will feature a drive-in bay for loading and unloading equipment.

Thanks for the rock star photoshoot, Kevin!

Houndmouth at the Green House

Michael Jones and I met the new band Houndmouth at drummer Shane Cody’s New Albany, Ind., home, which they’ve called the “Green House,” at the end of a practice to interview them for the Louisville Music story in the September issue of The highlander, and heard four unreleased Houndmouth songs on WFPK. (Michael can be seen in the background of one of the photos.) I had to shoot furiously while it lasted, while also enjoying the moment. Their session was precious with stops and starts and mistakes and laughs. When Katie asked if they should do another one, I didn’t say no!

Houndmouth is bassist Zak Appleby, guitarist Matt Myers, keyboardist Katie Toupin and drummer Shane Cody. Much luck to them on their upcoming tour, and with their newly released self-titled EP with Rough Trade Records.

Houndmouth practices unreleased material at the Green House, Friday, Aug. 17, 2012 in New Albany, Ind., before an interview with Michael Jones for a story about the Louisville Music scene for the September issue of The Highlander. Houndmouth is bassist Zak Appleby, guitarist Matt Myers, keyboardist Katie Toupin and drummer Shane Cody, whose home they call the Green house.

Jamason Welker for The Highlander: Louisville Music

I followed Jamason Welker as he went about his business tending the music at Baxter’s 942 Bar and Grill on Baxter Avenue on a recent Saturday for the Louisville Music story in The Highlander. He was out with his mentor, Doc Smith, both their wives and some friends. Wish I could’ve stayed for a drink, but it’s hard to shoot with a glass in your hand!

Oh. And I really dislike photobombers … Some guy behind the bar was making faces in the background – my fault for not seeing. I will notice next time!
