Make up, hair, lighting. All the focus is on the subject during a photo shoot. But as with any artistic expression, a photographic portrait not only gives exposure to the model out front but reveals much about the man behind the lens as well.
Celebrity photographer Mike Ruiz has worked with everyone from Kathy Griffin, Dolly Parton and Tyra Banks to Lindsay Lohan, The Jonas Brothers and Zac Efron, and has appeared on RuPaul's Drag Race and Canada's Next Top Model. He saw and liked my work and asked if I would be interested in doing a portrait of him, that he would use to promote himself as well as my artwork. It not only sounded like a good opportunity but fun as well!
