I met up with Yelawolf to shoot his essential items before one of his shows in LA. This is one of the more authentic essentials as Yelawolf had all of this on when I met him. The trickiest part about shooting an essentials is the lighting; I’m very happy with our quick decision to try shooting it on an equipment trunk with natural light.
After I set everything up and shot it, Yelawolf says, “Ah man we forgot to put my boots in there, we have to shoot it again.” I laughed thinking he was joking but he was serious. I wanted him to be happy with it so we shot it again and I appreciated that he cared about the post. After we re-did it I grabbed a couple of portraits that were featured on HYPETRAK’s instagram.
