I've known Pierre I mean Penjamin Franklin for a few years now through mutual friends, and I finally had the opportunity to 'shoot him!' He recently moved back home to start a new job and decided it was a good time to get some new pictures! His wishes for his shoot were places with 'dope lighting, visuals, and different.' I got excited because it tickled my 'let's be a little weird' side.
I knew it would be fun because he seemed like he was down with anything! I have to be honest I was nervous once again because I didn't want to let him down. I have to pick on him a little because he showed up with more clothes than some girls I've shot! He said, "I feel you need to be prepared for anything." He was prepared!
We shot at the Hagood Mill in Pickens, South Carolina it is a rural area with a walking nature trail that goes around for about 3/4th's of a mile. We also shot downtown Pickens. It was a Sunday afternoon, so most of the businesses were shut down for the day. We didn't have to fight for parking.
Pen is a Carolina raised, internationally influenced Songwriter. He was inspired by a biography he read about Benjamin Franklin. He's works with producer AblazeDaArchitek and Singer Quatrail Tucker under Architekture XIIIth/ SRWK music production.
