Laz has a pretty awesome Instagram feed showing off suits for the brand Musika Frere who sell luxury formal wear, jewellery & outerwear. Laz is an "image consultant" for the brand and represents the Miami community.
I contacted him to do a photoshoot as I have never photographed a male model before and wanted some variation in my portfolio.
We went to the luxury hotel SLS Brickell to do the photoshoot where he knows the manager and so had access to various beautiful locations. We shot 3 suits in 3 parts of the hotel which he will rotate on his Instagram feed with another 3 suits he shot with another photographer.
We started at the rooftop swimming pool on the 55th floor. Then moved down to a party room which was full of leather, fur & beautifully unique furniture. We then photographed the 3rd suit in the bar area with an outside space overlooking downtown Miami. We took lots of photos of each look and tried to get some half length, 3/4 length and full length to really show off the outfits.
See below a selection of my favourite photos from each suit.
"Great execution and communication in this photoshoot. Working with several photographers in the past, one of the main things you must have in a photoshoot is communication and execution."
