World-Renowned Photographer JEREMY SAFFER Signs with DYNALITE Dynamic Lighting as Latest VIP
Final East Coast “Capturing Music” Seminar Announced – September 22nd and 23rd in Chicopee, MA
After a busy month of doing shoots with MISS MAY I (this month’s Outburn Magazine cover above), Kerry King of SLAYER, Corey Taylor of SLIPKNOT and more, internationally renowned photographer JEREMY SAFFER has some exciting news to share!
After several years of exclusively using DYNALITE Dynamic Lighting, Jeremy has officially signed with DYNALITE as their latest VIP. Jeremy is known for his striking portrait and live music photography work, often featured in publications stretching from Metal Maniacs Magazine to Outburn Magazine and beyond, with artists ranging from My Chemical Romance to Alice Cooper to Behemoth. Jeremy is currently featured on the front page of the DYNALITE website in celebration of his signing. Check out his profile feature here.
“DYNALITE is proud to announce our newest DYNALITE VIP in JEREMY SAFFER. Jeremy’s work is outstanding and once we talked to him it was an easy decision to have him join the DYNALITE family of VIP’s,” states DYNALITE Inc. National Sales Manager Jim Morton. “His work is on the edgy side of music photography and shows a side of the music world that you normally wouldn’t see. He captures the feeling and emotion of his subjects giving the viewer an insight into their world. Beside his music photography, Jeremy’s portrait work stands alone in capturing his subject’s personality. His understanding of lighting completes the story that his subjects look for in their images.”
“I am both excited and extremely honored to become a part of the DYNALITE VIP team,” comments JEREMY SAFFER. “Since first starting my career, the DYNALITE Jackrabbit kit has been my “go to” light kit for on location, on tour, and even around the studio as it’s perfect for what I need. I can shoot outside in the dead of winter on a frozen lake, or in the middle of a desert under a cloudless sky in over 100 degree weather and DYNALITE never fails to fire with perfect and consistent lighting and color temperature. I have used DYNALITE lighting to create endless amounts of magazine covers, album covers, publicity photos, and editorial images of some of the most prominent touring artists in the music industry today. Everyone from ALICE COOPER, MEGADETH, SLAYER, SLIPKNOT, BEHEMOTH, THE MISFITS, to Robert Englund, Danny Trejo, Gary Busey and countless more have spent time in front of my DYNALITE kit. DYNALITE has proven time and time again to be the best, never-fail lighting that I can always trust to provide perfectly consistent and balanced lighting for anything that finds its way in front of my lens. I am looking forward to continuing creating images using the incredible lighting that DYNALITE products provide and work with them to get the best possible lighting in all future photo shoots.”
JEREMY SAFFER will be putting his LAST east coast “Capturing Music” music portrait seminar on September 22 and 23, 2012 in and around his studio in Chicopee, MA. The ALL AGES, two-day seminar/workshop will cover topics like “Business of Music Photography”, “Getting Published”, booking a shoot, live editing tutorials and more.

World-Reknowned Entertainment and Fine Art Photographer JEREMY SAFFER Announces New Website, Management, and Photography Seminar with Special Guests MyChildren MyBride and Thy Will Be DoneSeptember 21, 2011
For Immediate Release
September 20th, 2011
World-Reknowned Entertainment and Fine Art Photographer JEREMY SAFFER Announces New Website, Management, and Photography Seminar with Special Guests MyChildren MyBride and Thy Will Be Done
World-Famous professional entertainment and fine art photographer JEREMY SAFFER is pleased to announce the launch of his brand new official website, as well as management under Miss Management / Maria Ferrero. You can visit Jeremy’s new website now at www.jeremysaffer.com. The website features new, full screen images, a new navigation operation, and much more.
“I am very proud to announce my new website has officially gone live, but more importantly, I am very excited to officially announce Miss Management as representation,” states Jeremy. “I have been working with Maria Ferrero through Adrenaline PR, Miss Management, and the bands she’s represented for over half of my career. Through the years working in this industry, the best press always goes to the Adrenaline roaster due to their tireless and extremely professional work ethic. So, when it came time for me to secure proper and professional representation, it was a no-brainer to go with THE BEST, as well as someone who is both familiar with my work, and my future goals in my career. So with that said, it’s an honor and a privilege to be under the banner of Miss Management, and I can’t wait to see where we go from here.”
JEREMY SAFFER is also pleased to announce ‘Capturing Music’, a two day music photography seminar and workshop taking place on October 22nd and 23rd in Chicopee, MA. The seminar/workshop will focus entirely on doing portrait work with musicians. It will cover the process from setting up the photo shoot, scouting locations, posing, different types of lighting and lighting equipment for different situations, shooting endorsements, promos, CD layouts, magazine layouts, as well as taking you through the process of what you do after the shoot, invoicing, getting repeat business, etc.
The first day will be the seminar day, where all of the above is taught in the morning, then in the afternoon students will be doing mock-photo shoots experimenting with different types of lighting equipment, lighting set ups, poses, etc. The second day will be a hands-on photo shoot of special guest bands done first by Jeremy, so students can see him work a full shoot, and then it’s their turn! They will take over and complete a real photo shoot with the band in various locations in studio, outdoors, and around the studio location with various lighting setups.
“I can now announce that MyChildren MyBride will be taking time off of their hectic recording schedule to be one of the special guest bands at the seminar/workshop,” adds Jeremy. “Massachusetts metal kings Thy Will Be Done will also be trekking out from a weekend tour to be a special guest band at the seminar/workshop.”
Both of these bands will be part of a Q & A about band photography, be photographed by Jeremy in a real-life photo shoot situation, then photographed by the students in various locations with different lighting.
Saffer began making the rounds within the magazine world, publishing his work on the covers of such varied publications as Metal Maniacs, AMP and Outburn. Saffer has blazed his own trail, working with artists and models from all across the musical spectrum. From My Chemical Romance, Jeffree Star, and A Day to Remember, to Megadeth, The Misfits, Alice Cooper and Hatebreed, all have spent time behind Jeremy’s watchful eye and steady hand at one point or another. Jeremy establishes relationships with his subjects; he has earned the trust and respect of his peers via his attention to detail, and an unerring work ethic which can only result from years of hard work.
Recent years have seen a flurry of activity from the Western Massachusetts native, whether it’s organizing his own seminars and workshops, or releasing his acclaimed Bring the Noise collection of band photography, or his recently debuted collection of Corpse Painted Nude photography.
One thing is certain: whatever does wait for JEREMY SAFFER out there in the shadows…odds are pretty good that he’s going to shoot it.
