Sweet Paul

Paul Lowe, the man behind Sweet Paul magazine, wanted to me do his portrait so we finally were able to coordinate a sitting.  It is necessary to use a very bright flash to make a tintype and Paul exclaimed, "I can feel that thing hit me!'" as the strobe fired through my fresnel 5 feet from his head.  Within a few days the photo was framed and installed on his office wall.  Reminiscent of Hemingway we thought.  Below is a still life I shot last year kind of Sweet Paul -ish.
