Zach ... Senior Portrait
Back in the days when we began the studio, I caught a lot of grief because we did not have a room full of "props" (vinyl wing back chairs, bookcases with fake books, plastic ferns, well you get the idea). To be honest, I felt bad about this, not because my taste was better, but because I just didn't have the money to spend on them.
So I decided that the props had to be real, and to be real, they had to be my clients "props".
A state championship ring, a letter jacket, a football from his high school.
Reality! Not the fashion fake stuff of the moment.
Thanks to Zach and his family for seeing this in my art, and getting it!
