For me it’s aways fun finding new places to shoot, sometimes it’s a purposeful choice and other times the choice is made for you. When it came to photographing Sir up in Los Angeles I originally wanted to shoot at The Walt Disney Concert Hall, but time constraints and LA traffic made that not possible. I met Sir for our portrait session in West Hollywood where he was getting his hair all ready for the shoot, and decided it was best to stick in that area. I don’t think I would have thought to use it before, but it turned out to be full of so much amazing color, textures and all around great photo spots! It’s always inspirational for me to photograph in a new place, and I encourage all you photographers out there to do it whenever possible! Just make sure you go at a time where the light will be on your side, I tend to do my sessions about an hour before sunset.
Sir could not be anymore of a pleasure to photograph. First off: look at him, he’s super photogenic, and second, he’s one of the sweetest people I know! He is a host of his own TV show in Hollywood called AbSIRd, and when you watch him you know he’s doing what he’s meant to do! For information in his show check out his site here: www.AbSIRd.com
