    I had a fun shoot today with my friend Patrick. His look and wardrobe were perfect. I'll be shooting a Part II to this shoot tomorrow.

    Captured in natural light (window) with a silver reflector.

    Thank you. I was going for a dark/ grungy look with these.

    I was young in the 90's, but I can safely say, I never saw a hat like that one around here!:lol:

    All three are really great, but #2 really stands out to me! :)

    Is it a bit weird that I like him more when he's like Courtney?

    Photographing him as Kurt wasn't easy, but when we got to Courtney the next day we were getting a lot more good shots. Ironically he is much better at being photographed as a woman than as a man.

    Thank you! 2 is my favorite as well.
    The look for the shot with the hat was inspired by this: http://www.mojo4music.com/media/2014/10/Kurt-Cobain-kids770.jpg

    Yeah no2 stands out, very nice job.
    Lucky you to be in Portland, there's awsome food everywhere and people seems so happy (I'm pretty sure it's because of the food)

    It's getting crowded and expensive here, and with the way politics are set up the city cannot grow outward, so it has to go up. I think pretty soon this city is going to be facing some interesting changes.
