Some time ago, I did a couple of photo shoots with my friend Serena for her CD release. Serena is a cellist, singer/songwriter and fronts 'The Serena Jost band' here in NYC. Today she came to my building and delivered the finished CD for her new album Closer than Far. The record company designer used several of my photos from the shoot throughout the covers and booklet. We were both excited this day finally got here!... I was a kid, I wanted to design record covers, which I think was the inspiration for getting into graphic design.. Since then I have designed covers and packaging for musicians, but this was my first time being involved as a photographer. CD release party is at Joe's Pub a week from tonight. It's a tough bar to get into as a musician, so I'm very happy for her.
