For this wonderful session, we were given special permission to shoot at the community airport. When this wonderful couple showed up in such wonderful clothing, I knew this was going to be a fun shoot!
When Gary asked me to do his promo pictures, he described his music as being very blue-collar in the vein of Springsteen. I knew immediately the perfect location: a factory on the outskirts of town. Unfortunately for us, it began to snow quite heavily and was cold – -12. But Gary was a trooper and I had enough weather protection gear to get out at least one full lighting rig for the shoot. And even better, my fingers did unthaw later that evening and I could use them again! Big thanks to Gary for braving the cold that night.

Every now and then, I like to return to my film roots and go for the deep tones again. These were all shot with streetlights my only light source.
