I had a the great fortune to donate my Chicago charity advertising photography services to Chicago’s Edge Alliance, which is involved in a wide range of initiatives that respond to the needs of the homeless, people living with HIV/AIDS, the disabled, and veterans.
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.
Often times I come up with a shoot idea and then contact make-up artists. However, when Make-up Artist Brandon Phillips called me about a shoot he wanted to do, I was all ears. The retro boutique he lined up was amazing and the pictures we came up with pleased me equally. Credits:…
