Photographer Steve Belkowitz brought out the wild side of Cleveland’s Hard Rock Rocksino in a recent shoot, acting not just as stills photographer but also Director/DP for 6 TV and web videos.
Steve, who shared the DP role with a trusted camera man, had one main goal for the shoot. “Keeping my visual style and lighting consistent between the stills and the video – that’s the niche clients hire me for.” To that end, Steve was constantly in the mix during the 14-hour shoot days, carrying his shot list in his back pocket and checking things off on the go.
And go they did. Luckily, another of Steve’s goals is to have fun. “I always put together a fun crew, even when we’re literally running to make the schedule.” With country house band Post Road, plus cast, 10 extras, a full crew and clients on the set, creating that party atmosphere was no problem. “I even like country music now,” he laughs.
Next up, Steve trades the party lifestyle for domestic bliss, with a video job for inventor and entrepreneur Joy Mangano. And check out plenty more of Steve’s well-awarded still and motion photography here. Party on.
