I was just beginning my street photography adventure when I did a film course in Atlanta with the awesome Matt Clanton. Quincy was one of the people in my 6 day class and by the end of it we had hit it off pretty well. I asked if he wouldn't mind doing a shoot with me and he quickly agreed.
I made sure he knew that I had never done a shoot like we were going to do and he, fortunately, had tons of experience with it and we had a great time.
And I need to point out . . . that beard!!! (swoon)
He is a total natural in front of the camera and brought SIX(!!) outfits with him. I chose a few different locations I thought would work in the Little Five Points neighborhood of Atlanta and Quincy and I just mulled around the streets for about two hours.
I learned a TON about working with a model by how calm and confident he was and how quick he was to embrace each new location. I wasn't sure how well the photos were coming out during the shoot but by the time I got home and took a look . . I was floored.
Thank you, Quincy! It was my pleasure and I'm looking forward to our next shoot in Charleston!!
