Model portraits are fun and they allow me to take my mind off of the seriousness of the branding and marketing thought process that goes into commercial photography. Working with quality models who help produce portrait ideas, makes the collaboration that much better. When Maleri sent me the inspo for this shoot, I instantly loved it and knew it was going to go in the books as a personal favorite. I chose to color grade it with a nice moody tone that would allow the red to POP, without taking away from the model.

You'll be seeing a lot more of Maleri this year!
