ANOTHER SIDE OF: DUSTIN AKSLAND

Dustin Aksland‘s photos fully immerse viewers into scenarios, almost feeling the dirt-filled atmosphere of a rodeo or the unmitigated excitement of a first-time concert goer. And when Dustin photographs food and restaurants, we can practically smell the freshly prepared meals in the bustling kitchens. When asked about his approach to shooting the food industry, Dustin says, “Shooting chefs and kitchens isn’t very different from shooting musicians or bands on tour. The camaraderie and focus on a singular goal are fun to witness. But the best part of shooting chefs and world class food is getting to eat it afterward!” Thanks for taking us there, Dustin!

ANOTHER SIDE OF: DUSTIN AKSLAND

Dustin Aksland was approached by Miami-based rock band Jacuzzi Boys to join them on a short west coast tour promoting their new EP “Happy Damage.”  The original plan was to shoot photos and produce a small zine that would be released with the album and sold at shows. One week before leaving on tour, their label asked if Dustin could shoot video as well, in hopes of producing a short tour documentary. He said “of course,” and they ended up getting a short doc, a music video, a zine and an album cover. Dustin and the band continue a successful collaboration and friendship to this day.
