Custodio Castelo CD Cover Shoot

Joao and the master of the Portuguese Guitar Custodio Castelo

This week I am blogging from Portugal , where I have been  prepping and shooting the new promo images and CD cover for Portugal’s  own guitar genius Custodio Castelo , winner of the prestigious Amalia Rodrigues award  for best Instrumentalist 2010. Here are some behind the scenes images so you get a better idea of whats to come . I set the call time for 5 am , the brief was to capture a mysterious feel and there is nothing more mysterious then winter  streets at 5 am  , I also wanted to capture the sunrise a couple of hours later .. more images and BTS video to follow shortly , you can also either follow my FB page and Custodio’s New Page for more images , they will be showcasing a new image every couple of days until the Launch of the album in March .

Shooting started at 5am in the Lisbon streets
