Creating personal branding portraits is one of the true joys I have as a photographer working in Los Angeles. There are so many different ways that a person might want to look, and I love trying to capture my subjects at their best. For this portrait of musician Kevin Earnest, we opted for an old-world feel. The steadiness of his gaze was complimented by a two-light setup against a custom warm-gray Oliphant backdrop. The image was enhanced in Photoshop, but it is the client's gaze that makes this portrait a truly stunning image.
