It was a pleasure to shoot with Rob Bown in my Light Memories studio as it is rare to find male models in Cornwall. After seeing some of Rob's previous work I wanted to try something different and photograph Rob to capture his essence, character and masculinity. I saw Rob as a rugged suited James Bond type character so this is the look and feel I wanted to aim for using a mix of hard and soft lighting. Rob is a budding model and actor who I hope achieves his dreams and hopefully these images will strengthen his portfolio and help get him noticed.
The above image has a slightly harder gritty edgy edit to it.
To help show Rob's versatility the lighting and black & white edit of the above shot was to make
Rob appear as a 1950's Hollywood Movie Star - reminiscent of a James Dean image.
