I have been following this kid for a couple of years. And, finally, I had the pleasure of shooting one of the most beautiful faces this side of Hollywood. For those of you old enough, you will understand this reference. But, Ryan Mertz (Soul Artist Management) hearkens the days of Tab Hunter. Impossibly Coifed; Impossibly Handsome. Impossibly Hollywood.
So, my goal was to recreate some old school matinee idol with a bit of Margaret Howell simplicity mixed in. Polite and very kind, Ryan sat patiently as I tried to balance daylight mixed in with HMI lights. It is an old Roversi technique that I wanted to try out. I kept the styling simple, masculine and slightly romantic.
