San Francisco Band Dead To Me | Inked Magazine

Now on the newsstands is the October issue of Inked Magazine featuring a spread I shot of the San Francisco punk band Dead To Me.  Members Ian, Chicken, and Nathan are signed to Fat Wreck Chords and were 3 of the nicest chaps to photograph. They were awfully good sports about hiking around the wretched hobo-smelling sand dunes of San Francisco’s Ocean Beach. It was also windy and cold, but the guys just cracked jokes and were stoked to be in Inked. Me too. Big shout to my homie and long time SF music photographer Jeremy Harris on this one.

Note about the shoot: San Francisco’s sand dunes are a unique gem for city residents. For just a few dollars you can take a train to the Pacific Coast, but you would never know the dunes are an environmentally “protected” area. We ran into some diplomat sleeping in a nest stocked with cardboard, dirty socks, and an empty bottle of Mad Dog. Nice spot to visit. Cold place to live.
