M-Phazes - Good Gracious

I was so stoked to get to work with M-Phazes and Nate Flagrant on the photography for M-Phazes new album Good Gracious. I was also given to opportunity to come up with the concept of the shoot and got Sarah Hanisch in to style it.
The first shot below was originally for the front cover. It took a lot of setting up and styling. At the end of the shoot we still had 30mins at the location so we did a few quick shots of M-Phazes with Mantra. The client ended up choosing one of these "quick" shots for the front cover. It worked out so well, and fitted in more with the title that I had to conclude that it was the right decision even though it was totally random!
The artwork was done by Luke Fraser.
