One of my favourite things about documenting artists outside of the photojournalist bubble is the freedom I'm given to experiment and have fun. I don't want to compromise the integrity of a documentary series by adding or removing too many elements, but in this environment, with creative people like CBC Radio 3, I'm free (within reason) to play with different techniques to better illustrate the spirit of a subject and a moment in time. Trying to keep my work fresh at CBC was something I was very concerned with. Almost every shoot was in the same room, with the same backdrop, and while it sounds AMAZING in there, it sure don't look like much. It would be a great disservice to the performer, viewer, and client if I simply applied a formula to make the same musician shots from week to week. Nobody likes stale food - or stale art. I once saw a photograph of Ringo made by Mark Seliger. The image was a crisp, colour straight photo of Ringo with an extra set of arms with sticks in each hand. I kept that image in the back of my mind when I made this photo. This image doesn't look anything like his, but it is actually a wink and nod to one of my favourite portrait photographers.

This is truly an incredible record. The remaster sounds amazing. I really wish I’d been able to put this one out, as that was the original plan. #meligroveband #planetsconspire #labelobscura #vinyl #vinyljunkie #vinyligclub #nowplaying #nowspinning

end of an era; mic drop and applause #meligroveband #farewellshow

The first, last and only time The Meligrove Band performed Planets Conspire in it entirety. It sounded really good after all these years, it's just to bad it's the last time they are gonna perform live again.

The absolute last moment of The Meligrove Band. A well deserved bow.

Born of the Mississauga indie rock scene. An excellent collection of great guys and great musicians. From the Masonic Lodge in Streetsville to Lee's Palace in Toronto. And so much in between. They are part of the soundtrack of my life. Congratulations on a great run, boys! Will we see you play again?! @MeligroveBand
