I love getting to the same height level of the photo's subjects to take pictures. I think it's the best angle. I wish my friends would be ok with getting this muddy. I'd love to do a photo shoot like this.

Very cool. I find taking photos at the same height level of the photo's subjects is often the best way to go as well. I wish I could do a shoot with my friends like this, but I'm afraid none of them would be ok with getting this muddy. :)

Hah! This is awesome. Look at how wild they are! An uninsured camera took this pic?! YIKES!!! Good job not wrecking it! I'm sure if I had taken this, my camera would have inevitably slipped.... XD

Any band that would do this for a publicity photo has got to be worth seeing. They could have just stood in front of a brick wall with one of them looking off to the side like every other band does. Kudos to the photographer!

This band is lucky to have such a good photographer, I quickly listened to their music, nice industrial metal.

Anyway, ....very eerie swamp mud men! Good job!
