David Allen Cooper, Principal Horn – Dallas Symphony Orchestra.
David commissioned me for a two day portrait session and although he resides in Dallas, TX he agreed to travel to San Francisco along with his manager to conduct the session. I was free to completely art direct his imagery. His only request is that they were different than traditional symphonic musician portraits and conveyed a younger more relevant look.
The two day session was conducted on location in San Francisco as well as in studio at Hillbarn Theatre in Foster City, CA Two of the images involved long exposure light painting and were done in camera rather than in post processing. A Westcott IceLight was used as the keylight in creating those images. The light painting tools I employed are manufactured by Light Painting Brushes.
