Here's a few shots I snapped of my friend and Nashville musician, James Roquemore a few weeks back. It was a blast shooting in Nashville, but best part was seeing our original vision evolve throughout the morning. The shoot started out as a 1950's style, white-collar worker on his lunch break, utilizing historic alleyways and brick buildings in the background. Later that morning we stumbled upon a newer, more modern building with massive stone and concrete pillars. The light was literally perfect, so we decided to spend the rest of our time there, shooting a more contemporary, sleek, runway styled shoot.
James' outfit was actually perfect for both looks, specifically with the plain white shirt, buttoned all the way to the top. GQ likes to call it the "Air Tie." This is a look that has certainly recirculated in recent years with some designers, but was also a popular and classic look in the 40's and 50's.
Here is The Evolution...
