Readers of this blog may remember Woosik. Last year myself, and good friend Damari, set out with the boys from Ground Jam to shoot some promo material for them. Woosik is one of their members. Not only a phenomenal dancer, but after a short hiatus, now getting back into acting. Needless to say, when he contacted me looking for some headshots, I was more than happy to work with him again.
Being an unorthodox kind of guy, he wanted some unorthodox photos this time around. His inspiration for visual style was tear sheets from GQ, Geek, and 1st Look. A fun challenge to say the least! We got together of a Friday afternoon in a rented studio in the north of Seoul, and sat down for 해장국 (recovery soup… a Korean hangover cure) before beginning the shoot. Always a good way to start.
We had three outfits to get through, and 4 walls to work with. As you see on this blog, most of my work is outdoors. I’ll be the first to admit, I’m always nervous walking into a studio. Making my own light is not a problem, I do it all the time. I even teach a class on it. But a blank wall… that’s way out of my comfort zone. We got straight into it though, and conquered that fear with some killer images.
