City shoot with Kobe

Worked with Kobe Josiah, an extremely talented model (and photographer as well!). Milena Bennett styled the shoot - even going so far as making the jean jacket in these first images! The brief for the shoot was clean and commercial, with some vintage vibes but making it look current.

I wanted to play around with slashes of light - high contrast environments. I wanted the photos to feel like they were shot on location, rather than overdone studio lighting on location look. When I used strobe, I wanted to push the contrast to make the images really pop - to the point where it’s almost obvious that I used strobes. In the past I’ve been trying to make my strobe work feel more like natural light, so this was a really fun experiment in just letting myself light in a more dramatic way.
