Wes is a strange dude. Known him a long time. Love the son of a bitch, had a camera and a studio for a day and called him up. He pulled up around back on his bike and we went in. Got some shots, he brought a wrestling singlet, clown mask, shoes among other things. Didn't use any of that. He was down for anything so I told him to take his shirt off and swirled around him a little bit. Lots of good ones here I think . Wes used the profile shot there for his MF Goon mixtape cover.

This series of images is an ongoing collaboration between myself and Sydney LaFaire. We both share a passion for storytelling and try to create our own through photography and film.

Gavin is along time friend of mine and takes a damn good photo. We put him in a suit and found him some locations to compliment the clean look he had going on. It was a Florida type of day so we were sweating our asses off. I tamed his sweat a bit with something and kept snapping. A short shoot but I think we got something here.
