It’s been a long time since I posted and to make matters worse, I’m posting today as I learn of the loss of another good human with whom I’ve been blessed to work. I am determined to post more new work here in the future so this doesn’t simply become a celebrity obituary blog but out of respect to those that pass too soon I am compelled to honor their memory. With regard to this blog it appears that I’m lazy but respectful.
I first photographed Luke when he was brought onto 90210 as Dylan. I was doing quite a bit of Fox’s gallery work and probably did his first sessions for the show. A couple of years later New Line Cinema called me do publicity photos for 8 Seconds. These photos are from the last session I did with Luke when I photographed the cast of 90210 at the end of it’s run in 2000.
By the time we made these photos we had a good rapport, I would never say I knew Luke personally but we shared some memorable days, a few laughs and some interesting conversations. From the very beginning he “got it” and was my favorite kind of subject - he was witty, honest in front of the lens and knew exactly what he wanted to give to the camera.
