This portrait is of Nathan G, producer and recording artist, known best for his deep house music. This shoot was to produce a series of cool dramatic photos for promotional work, and another photo from the set was chosen as the album cover for his new release: bit.ly/KZm7Ng

To create the mood, I shot on black, and used a pair of small flashes as light sources, one bare to the left and slightly behind, the other through an umbrella for diffusion at a slightly lower power setting above and to the right. Combined with Nathan's styling cool drama was the result!
