I recently had the pleasure of shooting saxophonist Jafar Idris. It was nice making a series of headshots showcasing an instrument I played in high school.
Compcards: Male Model Troy Z has a strong look and can keep you from turning the page whether hes staring back at you or laughing in his headshots and photography portfolio.
For this Chicago black and white headshot series featuring models Robin Cook, Eric Luchen and Matthew Cuff, I decided to use natural light, augmented with reflectors, and fast prime lenses shot wide open to blur the background.
Model and dancer Raphael noted, “I am not as strong as I look in those pics, in my daily life. Unless I’m teaching dance in the ghetto.”
Harold might be the smallest male model I have every worked with. The 18-year-old, 1.77m (5-10) Floridian thin-stress tips the scale at just 52kg (115-pounds) on a good day.
