Zack-Hewell-by-LaRae-Lobdell

 

Zack Hewell is one of the coolest and easy-going people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting – and working with – in a long time.  We had been trying to schedule his full lifestyle shoot all spring, and on the perfect Seattle spring day it happened.

Honestly, the afternoon was fantastic, we had a couple great locations near the studio PLUS I had an awesome subject that was willing to get goofy for me with a new idea and promo piece I’m creating! Going through a series of about 40 emotional reactions I call out in a rigorous 5 minutes, we captured Zack’s entire persona and character range in a flow of imagery presented in a collage. This is a new idea and I’m customizing for my client’s Facebook covers (check it out above!).

Thanks to Zack for being willing to trust me in this new endeavor and rocking out a fun set!
