Sergey Korneff arrived to our photoshoot with 2×30 lb dumbbells he had carried across LA to our shoot. And THEN he did his workout once he had arrived! I knew from that moment that I was working with a professional who wanted to bring his very best to our shoot. The intense summer sun drenched the photo studio, and rather than soften it or try to block it out, I decided to just go with it and make that the theme of our shoot, and you’ll see how the sun dances across his muscles throughout these photos. It was a productive day and produced some magical shots.
