The inspiration surrounding this shoot was their EP artwork
This was designed by my old friend Steve at CWD Media. Every so often I get a blast from the past – it always happens in this industry :)
Steve and I met when I was first shooting shows at local bars and venues and he fronted a band called Vert.
I instantly clicked with Nesh, Dan, Woody and Joe. The shoot was super fun, and there was also Sammm Agnew working on their hair and makeup. She’s a stellar lady with amazing skills.
To compliment the album artwork the guys had brought along roses and what looked like coffin nails (?!) haha. I found an old skull lying around the photo studio and we all knew what we wanted to do. Sammm put this amazing piece together while I was shooting the full band images in the first section.
This creation featured in singer Anezka’s pictures and also the second half of the band shots
Worked really well didn’t it?
A couple of days ago Nya filmed their music video for single ‘You Are’ at Brixton Prison. I’ve been informed that should also be released alongside the EP on November 5th.
I think it’s safe to say Nya are on a mission… look out!
