The Photo Shoot
Leroy and I have been talking for a long time about doing a photo-shoot. I did some retouch for his personal projects and he has been following my work for the last 2 year. Yesterday, we finally managed to get together and do the shoot we've been talking about for so long.
Since Leroy is a model and a dancer, we wanted to have a variety of looks, from clean head shots to funky dance shots. In 2 hours time, I think we shot 6-7 different looks.
For this shoot I used a 4 light setup. I really wanted awesome rim light so we used 2 gridded strip boxes in the background, a beauty dish (no grid or diffuser) and a medium size soft box in the front and our background colour of choice ... Grey :)
I really enjoyed the shoot. Leroy is very professional and down to earth. He's very passionate about what he does.
Leroy believes that everyone has a purpose in life and what you do with it is fundamental. He enjoys connecting with people and creating opportunities that will impact and encourage aspiring people.
