If you've ever been in the presence of a professional photographer, you'll know what I'm talking about in this post, and if you haven't then just feel free to stick your filthy pointer fingers in your ear holes until I'm done. 

Every photographer comes with his own photo ideas to each gig, which makes sense, considering he's in a creative field. That doesn't always mean they're GOOD ideas. Often, they are awful ideas, but they end up producing the decent (IE - hilarious) photos. These are fantastic examples of "creative" photographers.

The photogs who snap promo or album shots of bands are no different. Let these hilarious Indie rock band photos serve as examples of good indie bands gone wrong. Musicians posing in half-empty rooms, with random naked women and shoulder-to-shoulder in a corn maze all in the name of music.

"Let's just take one shot with your instruments on the beach. Just one! Bring them all on the beach. I DON'T KNOW WHY YOU'VE GOT A SPEAKER IN A SUITCASE NEXT TO AN OCEAN JUST DO IT! I can't explain my art to you people."

Somewhere, there is a photo of myself and five other men in tuxedos jumping over puddles. I pray those photos never see the light of day. Unless we all start a band.

Incidentally, the band in the picture is the Leftover Cuties. They are actually very good and play in other places besides empty beaches.
