ATP Iceland was back in 2014 even bigger and better than before. I wanted to try something different and challenging, so I decided to shoot a series of backstage band portraits. For some artists I had less than a minute to work with. For others, time was flexible and we tried a few different looks. I didn’t get everyone, but it still turned out pretty great. Hit the jump to see the full series!
