Portrait of Jason-2


This portrait is of Jason, who I met at the Ferrari Store | Beverly Center, in Beverly Hills, CA, USA. He was a sales associate for the Ferrari store, his duties being to sell Ferrari merchandise. He had also learned enough about the cars to be able answer customer’s questions about them.

Jason loved the job because, as a lifetime “fan of cars,” he was learning more at work than he could ever imagine. For example, he had the opportunity to become part of the  racing scene: not long before I had met him, he was sent to Daytona to man a booth for Ferrari. This, was the highlight of his six moth career, at the time of this posting.

Jason was sitting next to a genuine (retired) race car, which is located, real time at the mall. I photographed all my Beverly Center shots on a point and shoot because I didn’t want to carry around my DSLR in the rain. I also didn’t carry around lighting or reflectors. In this case, I prioritized composition over lighting. I figured I could play with the lighting in Photoshop. This was the hardest of the Beverly Center photos to get right on Photoshop. If someone were to print this, you could easily see how photoshoped it is.

  1. Great portrait of Jason and how cool is it that he works around one of the top race cars of all time and getting a free trip to Daytona after 6 months of employment icing on the cake.
