When I first met Amber Thorton of CLAVVS it was during a photo shoot that I was doing for my Dirty Ego series. Little did I know that I would become a huge fan of this human and her band CLAVVS.
I came across CLAVVS from searching YouTube and watching their stripped down version of “Give it Up” I instantly fell in love with the vibe of the band, the tone, and of course Amber’s voice! I was feeling completely inspired and after many hours of internet stalking the band, I knew I wanted to do a photo shoot with them. I emailed Amber and she jumped on board.
I met her and Graham at Flat Iron bar in East Atlanta Village for a pre-shoot meeting and the ideas started flowing. The date was set and I knew magic was about to happen! We met at their house in EAV (lucky for me they lived 5 houses down from me) and we set up our own home studio in their living room.
Beth Corbley was on set for hair and makeup as well. This was by far one of my favorite shoots I have ever been on. Not only are Graham and Amber the nicest people but they are extremely creative and they were open to all sorts of ideas.
I love collaborating with other artists and troubleshooting ideas and being able to see visions come to life. We took SOOOO many photos that day and both myself and CLAVVS continue to use them bit by bit in our art.
I can’t wait to shoot with them again and if you ever get a chance to see this amazing duo live…DO IT! They just dropped a new single ‘Sit You Down’ and you can listen to it HERE! CLAVVS UP ATLANTA! This band is going to be around for a long time!
