Let's call it an unofficial music video for Grave Bathers, the band I've photographed for their promo package some months prior. Davis M Shubs, the rugged man in the video is the bassist and overall driver of the band. His bold personality and aesthetic are the qualities I wanted to capture on video. His background in music and video made it easy for us to work together.
Shortly after Davis got his bike back from the shop I pursued him about the collaboration. With a brand new camera in hand and a fixed shiny bike, we both were eager to make a striking video.
The locations that we've picked were the shop where the bike was worked, the strip club that Davis was frequent prior to the pandemic, and a few industrial roads on the outskirts of the city.
The song was chosen after the fact. The lyrics and the vibe fit perfectly with what were trying to achieve.
