I’m really eager to photograph musicians and this photoshoot is a perfect example why.
I’m familiar with Katie O’Connor and Steven Sharpe as individual artists in Galway and I love them both. Katie has an incredibly haunting soulful voice and lyrics and Steven is simply electric and raw. Both amazing live. They perform together under To Gaze Upon Us and they have a gig coming up in the Black Gate Cultural Centre on the 25th October. You can also catch them both on Spotify.
The friendly playful energy between them was a joy to watch. We took photos on a crisp autumn day around a few Galway locations and Katie brought her new beautiful guitar. When I asked them to sit down at one point, they played a song or two and it. was. just. magic.
