Earlier this winter, MammothReach had the opportunity to work alongside the incredible violinist known as Kiana June Weber. Based out of the Ann Arbor area, but touring worldwide in various groups for the last few years, Kiana is one of the most talented and passionate artists we'd ever come in contact with. MammothReach signed on to create a completely new online presence for Kiana. This included branding, her website, as well as photography and art direction, all done in-house. On a freezing cold winter day, I shot the photos you see below as Kiana filmed her new music video and prepared for her latest tour with world-renowned Gaelic Storm. We were struck by her talent, by her poise, and by her excitement for her craft. I hope you will be too.
We were lucky enough to be able to collaborate on this project with our good friends Blake and Carl at Motion Parade on this project. They filmed this incredible music video for Kiana at Hill Auditorium in Ann Arbor. Working on an incredibly tight schedule, they setup a circular track around her and filmed the same song upwards of 15 times, with her changing outfits between each take. I got to ride on the dolly and that was what allowed me to capture much of the portraits you see above. Give this video a good watch to see just how freaking talented this girl is.
