LOGAN SCHOTT

Logan Schott

Logan Schott is a model who can’t stay in one place for too long. Since I first worked with him a year ago on a banking campaign Logan has lived on both coasts and made travel between LA, NYC, and Buffalo a near constant in his life, but thankfully I have had occasional  opportunities to work with him since then on personal projects and a recent series of images for Cyberoptix. 

Logan was visiting Western New York for the holidays from Los Angeles to visit with family and friends, and as usual we made immediate plans to work on something together. The only snag was that the studio was pretty much empty for the holidays, crew members were traveling, some equipment was out for annual repair and maintenance, and even the heat had been running at minimum for days. No crew, no styling team, and very little gear is a bit of a break in how I normally work when I am on a commercial or editorial assignment, but these small projects with friends are always fun – just the two of us working together to make something. One thing we didn’t have to worry about though was wardrobe. Logan is essentially a punk rock fashion boy scout – always prepared, he brought a bag full of finds from his ceaseless thrifting and DIY clothing projects.

This simple black and white portrait was one of my favorites from the shoot (Okay… this was a hard shoot to edit as there were a lot of variations and great frames), and very illustrative of the type of portraiture I have found myself drawn to over the last few months.

There are a few other images from this shoot that I will share soon (probably next week). They have  a very different feel from this sombre portrait and I think they warrant their own post.
