I was fortunate to have seasoned international model Pyry available to shoot in vintage WWI gear in the Ajaton Joki studio this week. We scruffied him up a bit to give a bit more of a battle worn but still defiant look, which he easily brought to the table. Make up/hair ably done by Anu Hämäläinen at sostylish.net.
This gentlemen served in several wars, including WWII. It was my pleasure to photograph him in vintage WWI gear and in front of authentic antique war planes (that still fly regularly!). These were shot at the Bellingham, Washington, Flight Museum.
He really wanted to tell a story about the pilots who brought their dogs with them on missions and brought a neighbor’s pet.
