A few months back, Willie Nelson was in town to play a few shows and I was asked to shoot a few publicity shots for his harmonica player, Mickey Raphael. Mickey’s a little camera shy, so we didn’t tell him before the show that we were shooting him, but I’m sure he realized what was going on when he saw my camera constantly pointed at him. And while the shooting conditions weren’t ideal, I think we got some fun, natural shots of Mickey doing his thing.
So, without further ado, meet Mickey.
Of course, I had to get a shot in of Willie.
And finally, Mickey in the spotlight with a solo towards the end of the show.
