Coin 8 Studio Portrait Session – Autumn & John

John and i have known each other for a very long time, since High School actually. I still find that some of my closest friends are ones that i met during those formative years. I always excelled in the arts, especially photography but never really knew how to go about making it my profession. John on the other loved mathematics and sciences. It’s no wonder he’s now a successful dental surgeon with his own practice. And if that isn’t enough he is also an award winning bodybuilder.

It was only my second time meeting John’s wonderful girlfriend, Autumn but we hit it off right away and she was a natural in front of the camera. They’ve been both been in front of the camera quite a few times before so i wanted to capture something unique with them.

We ended up using a unique and wonderful loft space filled with an eclectic array of furniture, art and antiques. It was the perfect backdrop to create some painterly images inspired by some of the great artists of the Renaissance.

Although it’s the first time we’ve worked together it doesn’t seem like it’s going to be the last. Looking forward to the next one.
