I went out to Joshua Tree and felt really inspired to shoot there. So when Gene Louis asked me to photograph him, I thought it would be great to take him out there. Gene is solo artist here in LA but also sings for The Brave Ones. He spent the whole afternoon in the desert wearing suits like a champ. I was sweating my ass off. I have no idea how he was able to remain looking so slick. I can’t say enough great things about this dude. He is working his ass off and has some great projects coming down the pipe. Maybe some of these photos will make it on. We shall see.
