Ashley Pater

Back in February I did a cross promotion with Donegals Pub and Freakrock Entertainment for a Duo contest.  Lisa Freakrock put together a showcase where solo or Duo acts would compete to win a paid performance at Donegals on Valentines day.  Along with that I offered a promo shoot at Mystic Rhythms Photo Studio as an additional prize.  After a multitude of talent, the winner of the Donegals prize was Angie Faith and the winner of the photo shoot went to Ashley Pater.  

Ashley is a 15 year old singer/songwriter who is up and coming in the Vancouver music scene.  She just released her debut EP, “Wild Roses” on her birthday and performs solo or with her band Destination Unknown.  Her dad contacted me regarding the shoot and asked if they could add extra persons over and above the duo prize pack.  After some negotiating, we booked a 3 hour session in the studio.  The day of the shoot we had Ashley and 2 lineups of Destination Unknown in for the shoot.  She has designed her band to be able to swap out players based on availability and schedules.  I had a blast shooting all of the members along with some fun moments with just Ashley and her parents.  For this shoot I also had my youngest daughter Shonagh out to assist with the shoot.  She is developing her skills as a photographer and is building a portfolio.  Yes, I am the proud dad and happy I can pass along my knowledge.
