Russ Harrington

For 25+ years, Russ Harrington of Nashville, Tennessee, has been the go-to Photographer for Country Music’s biggest stars.

A typical session for Russ:
He has a narrow window of time to photograph one of the world’s most famous personalities. During that window, he has to account for the production of sets with Prop Dept/Assistants/Producers/Management/Talent/Makeup/Wardrobe/B-Roll Folks/Location Scouts/Catering and the CLOCK! He’s in charge of directing the subject, and all of the supporting staff on set.

His work will be seen all over the world, and he must create enough variety for the artist to use in album covers, promotional materials, merch items, social media and press releases—for the next 18 months!

Country Music superstars, maintaining an ever-evolving image, understand the need for photographers who deliver fresh, innovative ideas. Seventeen years ago, Trisha Yearwood discovered the secret to keep her photographs contemporary. She has used Russ for countless sessions: Album covers, book & magazine covers, editorial shoots, advertising sessions, etc.

Assign 30 Photographers the same subject at the same time, and most of the images will look like siblings.  Your choice of light sources, and how you use them, defines your distinct style. Do you understand the nuances of strobes, ambient light, soft boxes, umbrellas, beauty dishes, strip lights, reflectors, (and more)—and how they react together? You can.

For the first time in his career, Russ is openly sharing his secrets, lighting techniques, and tips.
