David Ross Lawn is a phenomenal composer, pianist, and vocalist based in Ocean Grove, NJ. Originally from Scotland, David has made a name for himself in the states, winning awards and receiving commissions for his musical compositions. David’s unique, androgynous style brought us together for a creative promo photo shoot.
I’m over the moon with how we were able to execute two completely contrasting moods. In the whale room, I set up an off-camera flash for a high key look. I wanted the photos of David lying on the floor to evoke an operating table vibe with bright examination lights. In the vintage piano room, we decided to let the natural window light dictate our shots, resulting in photos that remind me of dark, Renaissance paintings. David’s Victorian garb complemented the furnishings perfectly. I am incredibly proud of this set and hope you enjoy the photos. Be sure to give David some love!
