Simba

A young man found me on Instagram and asked me to shoot some image photos for him. This was really my first shoot with a model, and it was a lot of fun. I've always loved the Urban/Street aesthetic, and it worked great for this shoot. Check him out at itsmesimba.com. He has some of the shots up there as well.

Working with posing a male subject and not making it look feminine was a particular challenge

This was my money shot for the day.  He wanted a shot that expressed the separation and desperation of his generation.

Thank you.  I have always likes the urban/grime/gutterpunk/street aesthetic.   Glen Friedman's Dogtown series is one of my absolute favorites.  While this series isn't exactly in that vain, the locations I like to shoot in (also areas I do a lot of street shots in) remind me of that grungy aesthetic.

Thank you.  I appreciate, and agree with, the critique on the face.  I did a decent amount of research on shooting males, and really trying to not make them look feminine.  I was working with him on clenching his jaw during some of the shots to harden his jaw line.  I think it worked to an extent.  There were quite a few more photos that I took, but these were some of my favorites, more due to composition, lighting, style, and posing than success of the subject matter.  I love #2 and #4 as well because of the wide-angle lens work (unfortunately a rented lens that I am saving to buy) and the HDR processing that I was able to do on it.
