I have seen a recent influx of requests for me to do album artwork of late. It is a nice liberating option for me to break any ‘rules’ I may have to follow in portrait photography and I am excited this part of my ‘business’ is starting to strive.
I wanted to ask, in 2013, does the quality of the album artwork make you more inclined to purchase a physical copy of a record (cd or LP)? Or does it make no difference?
