Back in the fall of 2009, I had the opportunity to shoot Nate, a model from Covermodels Management, based in Ottawa, Ontario.

From the very moment Nate contacted me, I could tell he truly was a professional. He had his own ideas to bring to the table, all the while allowing me the freedom to be creative and test lighting situations that I had not yet been able to test.

PS. Julie lived in Long Island City…as do I!
