Synopsis

For my second and final shoot i stepped completely out of the box and

really wanted to portray past experiences of my personal life. It wasn’t so much about things that inspire me but yet more about a story that took place years ago. The story behind this theme/shoot is a young child bullied and made fun of most of his high school years, could never get ahead and couldn't really figure out why people were doing this. One day he was in his fathers closet and found his 10,000 dollar Tom Ford suit and tried it on. Once, after looking in the mirror, he felt empowered and felt worthy. He loved the way he looked and decided to wear the suit to school the next day. Once there people started to notice his suit and the bullying slowly started to drift away. Astonishingly the young man started to get complemented by girls and boys at the high school. He loved the way this made him feel and from that day on his whole attitude and appearance changed for the better.

The moral behind that story isn't about dressing nicer to make your self

noticed as some may think. Its more about the fact of finding that special something that gives you the strength and courage to go out there and make a change. In this particular story that item was a suit.

For the shoot i wanted to obviously incorporate a nice suit and dress boots,

but the main feature was the model himself. I really needed someone with an awkward stance and who was very tall and lanky. Someone who looked like had bullying issues back in high school, super shy, timid, etc. I wanted to portray the suit and model in a very raw and urbanized area. A place where a nice tailored suit would never be seen. Hopefully the viewer gets a hint of confidence and happiness from the model as he is in his full element upon wearing his fathers expensive suit.

Once again the hair and make-up treatments for the final shoot was very simple and easy. The make up was matte to cover up any shine that the camera lens would cause, as well as i think it smooths out the face and gives off a bit more of a natural look. Cover up and a light bronzer was used on the lower jaw and upper forehead of the model; we wanted to bring out his natural rosy cheeks to show a bit more of an innocent side that goes together in harmony with my theme.

The hair treatment was a bit more tricky. A styling paste was used to give

the hair a nice thick texture as well as shine from the use of a specific hairspray. I wanted to have a natural part in the hair, almost leaning towards a combover to add to my theme. Any other hair style would be to bold for the shot i was going for.
