A Photoshoot with Pepe Romero
A dream came true! Pepe Romero is one of the most respected classical artists of our age. His recordings and masterclasses have been an inspiration to many players and still continuing to be. Without getting too Wikipedia I better tell you the little story behind the photoshoot which is very special for me.
As a former Classical guitarist (a hobbyist now) I’ve always been an admirer to Pepe Romero’s artistry and musicianship.
The photoshoot took place in Antwerp – Belgium and literally 5 minutes including the setup as Pepe is very busy and his time is valuable.
I was very excited to set up very quickly in very difficult lighting conditions. The concert saloon had almost no ambient light. I used my trusty Elinchrom Quadra with a big umbrella to light him and the saloon as much as possible in limited time. Did my measurements and I had a few minutes to shoot the images. He was very friendly and nice to work with even though he was a bit tired as he had just finished a concert.
Here are some of the results I sent him today and his website if you like to explore more of his excellent music: https://peperomero.com/
