by Mike Tomko on July 22, 2011 Posted In: 2011, Blog

Jason Stoff shooting Union Tree Review. Photo by Bryan Sutter. Bryan Sutter shooting Dots Not Feathers. Photo by Jason Stoff. For the longest time I have had this idea for a band photoshoot. Get two photographers together at the same time, and literally have a photoshoot of the photoshoot.
