George – Navy Yard Park Musician Promo Pics

George in Washington DC

George reached out to me online. He’s a musician in the Washington DC area who does electronic music and needed some awesome promotional pics. I had no idea what I was going to do but I do think we got some great images. These are a few of my favorites rendered in black and white.

Location: Navy Yard Park, Washington DC

Using negative space and leading lines really makes this one pop, I think. The natural lighting was perfect this day.

I love the repetition in this picture and the negative space. The clouds covered the sky perfectly and the focal point is definitely around his headphones and face.

I took a few headshots of George but this was my favorite. We had some of him smiling but he told me that’s not really the kind of guy he is. I think this shot showed his intensity well and is a strong portrait. There’s a whole lot of connection in those eyes.

We found ourselves in front of a brick wall and George said that he just wanted a picture against a brick wall. I didn’t really see it coming together so I asked him what he was going for. “You know…urban hipster.” I saw this sign up on the brick wall and envisioned this exact picture in my head. I think this one is probably my favorite of the entire series.

    These pictures are fantastic. Some photographs are flat but this captures his essence. It’s like you’re really seeing a bit of a person you don’t even know.

      Thanks Anya! I know he’s not a very smiley person, much like myself. I just wanted him looking strong. I think if there were pictures of me like this I’d be happy.
