Recently I had the opportunity to assist Celebrity Photographer, Jesse Dittmar for a few days while he was here in Chicago shooting work for his new book. If you're not familiar with Jesse, I highly recommend checking out his website. He is one of the top celebrity photographers in the world and has shot everyone from Tom Hanks to David Letterman and the entire Star Wars cast. Also, of note is that before Jesse went solo he worked as an assistant to famed Photographer, Annie Leibovitz.
Having done some research on Jesse before we worked together I knew that one of his inspirations was the late Photographer, Richard Avedon. So, when the opportunity presented itself I asked Jesse if I could take his photo and made the image you see above. I think it turned out as a nice ode to Avedon.
