There is something so challenging yet totally awesome and rewarding to be able to really connect with teens. Especially boys. There’s nothing more mysterious than boys of this age group. So quiet, yet outspoken. So shy, yet so opinionated. And unlike a lot of girls, they don’t always feel that comfortable in front of a camera. Thankfully for me, I keep getting the most AMAZING subjects to photograph though so Brian and I were able to just sort of hang out while I snapped away. Of course having the guitar there was a big help to keep him looking so relaxed and just like himself.
I really enjoyed photographing Brian. He is a musician who is a edgy and creative so it was a must that his images reflect who he is. I wanted his images to ‘feel’ like the type of guy he is, and I’m so pleased at how his personality has come through in these.
I love, love LOVE working with teens! And Christine was no exception! The camera loved her and she was just so natural to photograph! Christine is my cousin so don’t be surprised if she makes an appearance here again at some point again in the future!
