Great magazine cover photo for FastWinn Photography! Sin City Presents Magazine April 2017 edition, used Maureen Kirk-Detberner’s photo of Las Vegas Rock Band TailGun. The article on TailGun starts on page 32 through 35. The photograph is from a photo session with the band in January, 2017.
The backdrop was the plane at Nelson, NV. Maureen edited the photo to bring it up to the gritty rock ‘n roll standards of TailGun!
We had a great time taking photos of the TailGun band members. It was a cold, windy, cloudy January day but we made the best of it. The photos were taken all around the grounds in Nelson. We took more photos at the old yellow school bus with the band members and their wives and girlfriends. Other photo backdrops included the upstairs in the barn, the barn stairs and the main floor of the barn.
Nelson, NV has so many great areas for photographs. There is an amazing collection of old cars and trucks as well as the plane and some great old buildings. Nelson was a mining town and is very close to the Colorado River. Today, it operates as the ElDorado Canyon Mine Tours. They offer mine tours and you can use their town for photo shoots. Both come at a small price and more information is available on their website.
After the photo session in Nelson we went to Vamp’d in Las Vegas to take photos of TailGun in concert. It was a full day starting at getting u p at 5:30 am and returning to our hotel room at 2 am!
This was a great opportunity to have a magazine cover photo! Other FastWinn photos were used in the article as well. Thanks so much to TailGun for picking the FastWinn photos and for Sin City Presents Magazine for using them!
