Behind the scenes lighting setup and breakdown
Oprah’s glam team
2013 ended with one of the most exciting jobs of the year: photographing the much anticipated Essence Hollywood Issue featuring Oprah Winfrey, Forest Whitaker, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Michael B Jordan. Essence’s editors and these legendary thespians met me in Los Angeles, where we constructed a beautiful set to capture the energy and excitement of an epic year at the movies. Enjoy these special behind the scenes moments. Thank you to the wonderful people at Essence Magazine for bringing the vision together.
