From Haiti to America

October 2018, I was heading home from work when I saw Jean walking in the direction of where I live. I quickly pulled my car over hopped out and proceeded to introduce myself. I saw potential and I did not want it to get away, I expressed my interest in shooting we then exchanged contacts. Months had passed before I heard from Jean I didn’t think he was interested in shooting until I received a text from him at the beginning of the year. He informed me he would be ready to shoot sometime in May, it couldn’t get here fast enough. Through texted we talked life, photography, modeling, shooting, etc, I told him I wanted to create something striking and he was sold. I took him over to one of my favorite places to create here in Lincoln Park and we made some magic happen. With the use of natural and strobe lighting we were able to create some stunning imagery.

"Strobe Lighting"

What's in my Lighting

I have a host of lighting in my arsenal utilizing both strobe and constant lights.  These are the very tools I use to shape my work. In this post, I am going to focus particularly on the strobes aspect. Below is a list of the strobes I own and have used over the years. Just recently I released a video in regards to “Lighting Modifiers” I felt it was only right to do a follow up discussing the actual strobe lighting that I use. I hope you all find this post encouraging, I urge you to explore!
