Not going to act “too cool” at all, this shit is amazing to me and I’m honored to have my video I directed nominated for VIDEO OF THE YEAR against these guys!? Diane Martel? I was almost her assistant once, Chris Brown? Drake? Kendrick and Janelle? Robin Thicke!? HELL YEAH!
Enjoy some BTS images of my shoots with Tamar Braxton for the record cover and music video of “Love and War”
This is Taylor from Photogenics and we photographed this on my roof. It was a quick one day shoot, and LA had the horrible heat wave. We went outside because one of the best things about winter/fall is the sun. It’s lower in the sky and you get better shading. When the sun is too high up in the summer you get the dark shadows under the eyes which give you raccoon eyes. Usually in the summer you have to photograph super early or late in the afternoon and your pictures are too orange.
This was photographed on a 5DII, L Series lense, and all natural light. We did not use any light support for this image.
Photographed at Hotel Cecil in Downtown LA. This is where the night stalker stayed during his killing rampage that scared So Cal to death in the mid 80’s. If you are parents have a 3rd lock, it’s probably because of the night stalker. I am trying to sex up my portfolio, thus the new increase in sexy images. The night stalker tid bit was a little fact, NOT related to this shoot.
