Ben Gamble is a talented artist, poet, lecturer and manager.
I was asked by Ben to take some portraits for the cover of his upcoming book entitled “Rocket Rides”. It’s a selection of poetry Ben has written over the years. As time has passed Ben is aware of the inner conflict between the artist and the manager that he faces. I wanted to try to portray that in my images.
A combination of both studio and ambient light locations were used. Nikon speedlights were used in combination with PocketWizards and a Sekonic light meter. Maintaining the correct exposure was very important when shooting to combine images. It was a pleasure working with Ben and I'm hoping he likes his images, if not, we can always take some more.
