Taayo Henley, so let me rewind to a few weeks back when I first had my encounter with Taayo. He sent a simple message introducing himself and letting me know he was looking for dope people to collaborate with. Since August 1st we were planning how to connect with one another, August was such a hectic month for both of us. After weeks of planning we solidified a date for Sunday September 4th, and what a dope time we had. Immediately you will put him in a category with A$AP Rocky and Travis Scott but he is so much more. He has their bravado but still carries himself like a super model so he's more of a double an tantra he is a really cool dude. When he walked into the studio he was accompanied by a friend by the name of Rell both of the fellas were really down to earth guys.

Working with Taayo was fully interactive, we meshed very well in front of the camera. The shooting relationship was really give and take and we fed off of each other's energy. The one thing i have to get used to is having an assistant on set, Naquell James of Urban Phokis photography was on set assisting me with the shoot. The lighting technique I used for this shoot I got from Profotos YouTube channel about using your soft boxes in different ways and I must say it was definitely amazing to execute. There was an additional lighting technique that I wanted to do but ran out of time to do it so we will set another session to finish up. Until then enjoy the images from this set, and feel free to leave a comment down below!!
