Senior guy transforms from casual to model during his photo shoot
Class of 2017 Senior goes street performer.
Let’s rewind to 2 years ago when I was looking for a model for a personal project I was working on and got hooked up with Audrey. Since then we’ve done 2 personal projects together that remain in my top 10 fav projects I’ve ever created!
She has a shy but adorably sarcastic boyfriend that she’s been with for 3 years. She recommend him to me and they ended up booking a last minute Senior shoot. To make things even more ironic he, his mom, and his younger brother walked through the door and I instantly realized I photographed his little brother YEARS ago when I very first got into photography. Now it had come full circle, back to him. Not it was Matt’s turn!
We started out in the studio with a black leather jacket and side swept hair that totally reminded me of an Outsiders vibe, which between the laughs he totally nailed! We then ventured outside where we did everything from climb over downed trees, hide under wooded forts, walk down railroad tracks laid in the river, and even got desperate and had to bust out the trombone case and turn into a street performer to get us to the next location.
There was a lot of laughing and silly sly looks but Matt totally pulled off 4 different looks that I think secretly showed off all his personalities he might hide away until the time is right.
You have to watch our Behind The Scenes film to fully appreciate Matt's personality. It makes me laugh and smile every time!
