AWOLNATION at Nokia Center in Los Angeles

I have been lucky enough to know the guys from AWOLNATION in some cases for a lifetime. The bassist in the band happens to be my brother. The singer (Aaron Bruno) and guitarist (Drew Stewart) went to high school with me. I have seen this band progress over the years. I saw them play a party in my backyard that will forever go down as one of the best parties I have ever been to. I saw them play a tiny club in Salt Lake City. I now get to enjoy seeing them fill stadiums. I am seriously proud of their efforts to keep trying and never give up. On this occasion, the band was playing a show at the Nokia Center in Los Angeles. They were headlining a tour with a relatively unknown band at the time Imagine Dragons. To this day I am pissed that the photog from Rolling Stone magazine was in the right place for an epic shot of Aaron jumping into the crowd…que sera sera. I lived, I learned. These are the shots I got from that show.

Behind The Scenes Shaun Canon Music Video


Behind the scenes on the 3 day Shaun Canon music video shoot

I was asked by the director of the music video to shoot some production and behind the scenes shots for a music video. I honestly had never heard of the artist and was expecting it to be budget looking. This is one of the reasons I always tell other up and coming artists to take chances. I knew the director and even though I didnt know the artist, I knew that the director usually would produce some high quality looking stuff. So I took a chance on the project. I am very happy I did as the photos turned out to be some of my favorite stuff that I had ever shot.

To start, the location scouting was pre-thought-out. So when I arrived, all I had to do was show up and shoot. Cinematographers Derek Pueblo and Jeff Yeats both are superb photo/video artists and were already prepped to shoot at the set locations.

Take a look at the photos below to see some behind the scenes and production shots we got from the 3 days of shooting.
