Guitar Collection BTS


Sometimes I work with a big crew and sometimes I work alone. I enjoy both immensely.  Being a guitar player since I was 16 this was such a treat. My favorite…the Gold Top Les Paul. Never been a huge fan of something that flashy but it photographed so well I fell in love with it.

For this shoot I wanted something very minimal, dark, sexy. The kind of scene of a guitar laying on some rock star’s bed sheets. As you can see this is a super simple set up anybody can do with just a large softbox.
