Portrait Of The Week Series - No.40: Hopetoun Brown

I caught up with Nick Atkinson and Tim Stewart of blues duo Hopetoun Brown at The Lab Recording Studio in Mt Eden where they were putting down some new tunes.

I had offered to do some publicity images for them in between recording sessions, but as it turned out Tim was full of a cold on the night so I had them all to myself for a quick 45 minute photo session.

I started with the guys up against a black backdrop for some bad ass 'blues-style' shots and then followed up with a more contemporary look against white.
