Just Loomis has photographed six a-ha covers, including Grammy nominated Album of the Year “Hunting High and Low”. In 2011, Loomis released a book of his a-ha photographs. He has also photographed covers of Morten’s solo albums ‘Out Of My Hands’ and ‘Brother’. In December 2014, he accompanied a-ha to Brazil for the announcement of their participation in Rock In Rio’s 30th anniversary concert; one of his photos from that trip became the cover of ‘Cast In Steel. Loomis later went to Brazil with a-ha on tour in fall 2015, and directed the video for the title track of the album.

a-ha Photographer – Just Loomis Book
“In an age of music videos whose rate of viral spread eclipses that of any other music format, the 1985 video for a-ha’s immortal synth-pop hit “Take on Me” endures as one of the classics of the genre. As new generations discover the greatness of a-ha, photographer Just Loomis, who shot the cover images for five a-ha albums, and who has been documenting the band since the glory days of “Take on Me,” publishes his superb collection of never-before-seen a-ha photographs.”
