The photo shoot that almost never was! I literally didn't know until 10 minutes before our location call time whether we would have permission to do this shoot. Luckily everything came together and everyone involved was gracious enough to go with the flow!
I had previously done an amazing shoot in this historical house with model Christine Keenan and was dying to get back into the location before leaving Boston. It ended up being the best match for a shoot with Rich that I had been kicking around ever since the Idee Fixe editorial we shot together. Rich is a true renaissance man embodying the roles of actor, model, author, magician and I am sure many more.
The idea behind the shoot was to see the man behind the mystery so to speak. The illusion of a man who deals in such; The practicality is magic and the magic is in the mystery of how it comes to be.
|Gatta love when you get to prop a shoot!|
