Black Metal is everything. Photos from my book Daughters of Darkness. As I start work on my next major personal project/book, I'm reflecting on how important it is to have projects outside of your normal creative space. Even if they don't come to fruition, even if they take years to complete (daughters took me 12 years) it's important to have those passion projects where you can experiment and expand. Where you can try something new, where you can create what you want to create. while my next book is something completely different... I can't wait to dive back into the world of Daughters in the near future and shoot more of this in different ways (spoiler alert I've already started). For those who do not have my book yet, you can get Daughters of Darkness anywhere books are available but the best place to get it is through the publisher Rare Bird Lit where signed copies and the double vinyl soundtrack is available. picking up a copy of this book not only supports an independent publisher but also helps me in continuing to do personal projects and books... and who wouldn't want a massive book of co**se painted metal warrior women on their table? if you already have the book... what's your favorite shot? . . . . . #daughtersofdarkness #blackmetal #blackmetalartwork #blackmetalart #trvekvlt #metalart #blackmetalphoto #metalphotography #blackmetalphotography #co**sepaint #supportsmallbuisnesses #supportart #supportblackmetal #photobooks #photobook #photographybook #rarebird #bathory #fineart #fineartphotographer #fineartportrait #obscure #independentart #altphotography #metalmodel #girlsofmetal #womenofmetal #instametal
I have again teamed up with the incredible Ash Costello for a new autographed print series featuring 4 prints from my book Daughters of Darkness.

The book, Daughters of Darkness is available wherever you buy books and thru Rare Bird Lit (with some amazing bundles and DOD merch!) store dot Jeremy Saffer dot com. . . . . . #ashcostello #newyearsdayband #co**sepaint #blackmetalart #blackmetalphotography #daughtersofdarkness #daughtersofdarknessbook #musicportrait #rockphotography #musicshots #metalphotography #bandphotography #bandphoto #musicphotography #bandphotographer #musicphotographer #metalphotographer #portraiturephotography #portraitphotograph #portraitphoto #bandportrait

Devil's Night... One year of Daughters of Darkness (anniversary announcement at the end of post). It's incredible how quickly time goes by. It's been a full year since my photo book Daughters of Darkness was unleashed. Having the intro written by the incredible Randy Blythe and Forward by Dani Filth is still unreal to me, their words so perfect for this book. So as I celebrate Devil's Night tradition by watching The Crow as I do every Devils Night, I will also be celebrating one year of the book. There are still a few signed copies, limited editions, and vinyl editions with the soundtrack available only thru Rarebird and as an extra special one year anniversary, Rare Bird Lit are taking thirteen percent off the book for the next week and all orders this week come with five all new prints (seen in this post) exclusively thru the publisher Rarebird. If you already have the book please feel free to leave it a review on Amazon. More exciting things coming from Daughters of Darkness soon... who would want...

It's Freddy Moore's 71st birthday today. And while he is in late-stages of Alzheimer's and is no longer aware of many of the memories in his audacious life, he still feels joy. He still feels love (especially by his soulmate, Renee Schyjer, pictured, taken today). His book is almost on the shelves (9/7!). Check out the cool cover! I know he would love it and be so proud, and I hope to see him smile when he sees it in his hands. -- Shannon (co-author) Pre-order link here (also avail on Amazon).
