Motel Portraits

I’ve decided this is my next shoot project. The concept is generally the same as it’s been: moody, cinematic, storytelling, editorial, mysterious, sexy.

Create some characters! Try a shoot that has a story, like you’re creating a film.

I really want these to feel voyeuristic, in the sense that the viewer feels like they’re getting a peek into something real, and not being presented with something that’s posed.

Each shoot should include a mixture of outdoor and indoor shots. Right now I think the exterior shots need to lean heavy on the environmental aspect; hotel signs, theater marquees, and other distinctive backdrops. A sense of place is critical.
