Stelth Ulvang of The Lumineers - Musician Portraits - Durham, NC

This is the story of how I got to shoot musician portraits of Stelth Ulvang of The Lumineers in Durham, NC:

I emailed him and I asked.  

He said "ok".

Outside of The Pinhook in Durham, I jumped into Stelth's van and rode down to the local laundry mat, Bull City Suds.  He had to dry some clothes so while they dried I took some portraits of him.

Afterwards, we went down to Full Steam Brewery and I took some more portraits of Stelth.  I bought him a beer, he bought me a grilled cheese from the a food truck.  I talked about how I teach at a local art school.  

Stelth and his band were intrigued. 

The next day he came into my classroom to play for my art students along with Blake Stepan (double bass) and Mike Jesurun (drums).  Click here to see the video of Stelth playing in my classroom. 

Here are the portraits:
