EXCLUSIVE – Midnight Shine’s “Northern Men” Photo Shoot

Posted on the 21 June 2017 by Hendrik Pape @soundcheckblg

It just might be the coolest - and coldest - photo shoot ever done by a Canadian rock band, shot in the dead of winter, and being released on the first day of summer dubbed "Northern Men".

Northern Ontario rockers Midnight Shine spent a weekend in Moose Factory this past March, coming together for their very first collaborative songwriting session. While there, local amateur photographer Christopher Kataquapit asked if he could do a photo shoot. They agreed, bundled up, and headed outside to let the magic happen. And happen it did!

Just a few minutes into the shoot, a snow-white husky dog appears out of nowhere. He begins following them, casually walking behind at first, as if curious to know what's going on. Then, he spans the width of the group, like he's sizing them up, one by one. Next thing you know, the husky makes his move. He pulls out in front and continues walking with them, now leading the pack, and asserting himself as the alpha male. It was a priceless moment, and Christopher was there to capture the whole thing on camera.

The "Northern Men" photo shoot offers a very cool glimpse into what life is like in Canada's North. It was shot by a Northern photographer, of Northern musicians, in their Northern homelands, in the North's favourite season.

It doesn't get much more Canadian than that.

Catch Midnight Shine on the road this summer with dates across Canada including a main stage appearance at RBC Bluesfest in Ottawa on July 16.
