This is Finnish metal star Jouni Hynynen from the band called Kotiteollisuus.
The magazine had asked something “rock”, but the restaurant they interviewed looked like every restaurant at day time – clean and white. I got the colors from color gels I used with my speedlites. The half eaten pizza is what I found in front of Hynynen when I arrived.
Finally when I got everything good they couldn’t use it because mr. Hynynen got rid of his beard just few days after the shoot. Which means I have the opportunity to do it even better next time.
