I really didn’t know what to expect when I was asked to shoot The Specials, mainly because I didn’t know who they were at all.
Needless to say that I cracked Google open and did a very quick search to see what kind of visuals I might expect (the music is actually not all that important when you’re taking photos) and most of the photos I came across were of the guitarist Lyndal Golding who seemed to be quick photogenic.
Sometimes is doesn’t hurt not to know too much before stepping into the photo pit. I helps to keep things interesting.
