We shot in the Teen Vogue offices at 1 World Trade center. Their space is so high-tech and interesting... we shot in the "ribcage" and by this amazing oil painted mural. See this guy on tour if you can- he has a voice like an angel. He's also nominated for a grammy this year!
For those of you that know me and my photography style, you know that there's nothing more that I love than a good ole' , raw, "this is me" black and white portrait. SO I was pretty pumped when approached by Teen Vogue to shoot that exact style of photo for their music series, SoundScout.
I met Sway Clarke II at an extremely crowded diner in midtown on a rainy day. People were lined up between the booths waiting for a table, and we managed to grab a seat and snap a few photos. Sway is such a great dude, with a fun, positive energy. We ate pancakes and fruit.
