We met in Royal Oak, Michigan because I love the different colors and textures around town. I knew the downtown area would be perfect for commercial images. However, for fitness, I wanted a grungier urban feel. Royal Oak fit that, too. With the various back alleys and store fronts, we were able to create some great images together.
Shawn came to the shoot prepared and full of great ideas, yet willing to try ideas that I suggested, as well. I've been wanting to shoot dust/powder for some time. Originally, I was going to use it with dancers, but when I met Shawn, I knew he'd be perfect to go in a different directions...one of power instead of grace. He had a great attitude through the entire shoot. We both had a lot of fun, and a lot of laughs, especially after the powder shoot. I think both of us will be finding powder in weird places for months to come.
