Great job, I envy your attitude!

As an aspiring street photographer it would be great to know what lens focal length you use for close up portraits such as this compared to your wider shots.
Really like the way this guy stands out against the background like a ‘staged’ shot but could easily be a dark alley in the background he is melting out of….
And the hair!
Beautiful. I agree, that your portrait shots are the best. It’s the details, it’s about the people, their expressions. Not all the fashion-boom-and-bust-kitsch-peng-bazoog. Capturing people’s personalities, very often means capturing details. There’s something totally fractal about photography: you can get sometimes as much (or even more) out of a detail shot than out of a full-body one.
Btw, over the last years I’ve seen a lot of fashion blogs, streetstyle and others, but I keep coming back to yours. I like your steady confident approach. It’s awesome that you don’t just snap the latest it-humans with their bombastic bags and towering heels, who are waiting to be photographed. It seems like you try to make things be about more than just the show. Your photography is more about people, their characters and expressions.

foreground beautiful, perfect light as the subject! ;)
April 26, 2012 at 4:50 pm
So boring. What’s the message of this shot? That he’s got great bone structure? This is what i hate about men’s fashion, the focus seem to be on how beautiful your face/body is, not necessarily on the clothes and how you wear them..

This is simply stunning. I love your photography because you seem to really capture the personality of your subjects. The lighting, tones, and texture of this photo is really beautiful. Love love love.

and the guy, WOW, one of the most attractive guys I have EVER seen! really, ever!
April 26, 2012 at 5:06 pm
Dark background, brown eyes and this scarf with its amazing pattern… great combination!
April 26, 2012 at 5:08 pm
You really should give up the fashion street photography and become a photo journalist……
This is your true calling…
April 26, 2012 at 5:15 pm
This is really a great picture, the chiaro scuro effect is brilliant – some of Rembrandt’s models looked the same. I like the blue in the scarf.
April 26, 2012 at 5:16 pm
I love this one! It looks like it’s been taken in a studio. He’s very handsome in his scarf and perfectly styled hair :)
April 26, 2012 at 5:39 pm
April 26, 2012 at 5:41 pm
great shot. i need this scarf!
April 26, 2012 at 5:48 pm
Love the chiaro scuro effect, reminds me of Rembrandt or Vermeer – the touch of blue in his scarf makes it complete
April 26, 2012 at 5:50 pm
He has really amazing cheekbones.
I love the print on his scarf.
April 26, 2012 at 5:54 pm

He’s so handsome. Beautiful portrait. I love the simplicity of the backdrop and setting. That scarf is fantastic.
April 26, 2012 at 6:14 pm
Maybe it’s a new way of seeing or just a new take on men fashion shots. I’m loving it! Keep it up!
April 26, 2012 at 6:15 pm
I guess it is because you are such an amazing photographer and you capture something in their eyes…

Great scarf! Love the burgundy and navy combo.
April 26, 2012 at 7:12 pm
This is a beautiful photograph. The gentleman’s scarf bouces out at you as the subject of the image. The man’s attractive face is complimentary to the scarf’s textual quality. Truly, it appears as though the scarf is wearing the man. It reminds me of the portrait pieces by many of the dutch masters of the renaissance, but particularly Jan Van Eyck’s “Man in a Turban”. See what I mean? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Portrait_of_a_Man_by_Jan_van_Eyck-small.jpg
April 26, 2012 at 7:25 pm
love the depth of this portrait ……handsome …wonderful great tone
April 26, 2012 at 7:27 pm
and the black background is so powerful the image just jumps
April 26, 2012 at 7:38 pm
unbelievably sexy!!! i’ll give you credit you’re a good photographer but he is just too good looking for it not to be easy to capture his face
April 26, 2012 at 7:56 pm
what’s this guy’s phone number again?
April 26, 2012 at 8:46 pm
Move over Johnny Depp.

Gorgeous shot!! And I love the modern tribal shawl – beautiful print!
April 26, 2012 at 10:49 pm
wow!! amazing portrait!! love his scarf!
April 26, 2012 at 11:02 pm
How could you possibly resist getting a close portrait of him?
April 26, 2012 at 11:12 pm
Sharp and yet relaxed. Love it.
April 26, 2012 at 11:30 pm
That’s a lot of careful grooming! From hair to chin, I’ve never been able to keep things symmetrical.

April 27, 2012 at 1:44 am
its the classic – don’t judge a book by its cover. but, how man books would we read if the cover wasn’t compelling? would you have captured the portrait if the cover hadn’t pulled you in?

Love this portrait ! The detail of the scarf is quite stunning in this picture givens the fact that it’s almost hidden by the dark. Just amazing !
April 27, 2012 at 4:46 am
He looks like a moldavian man, the scarf is so vintage. Only CCCP ccountries weared before such kind of scarfs

You know how to shoot
April 27, 2012 at 10:56 am
The black background makes it look like a frame. Great shoot, once again.
April 27, 2012 at 11:07 am
Like a painting. And yes I think like @Stefania,it is like Caravaggio-like
April 27, 2012 at 11:10 am
What a handsome man! Love the bold color and texture of the scarf w/ those lovely brown eyes….
(Scott, your portraits are quite the thing!)
April 27, 2012 at 11:22 am
Such a nice jaw frame. Excellent portrait! It works for your the close portraits work for you. They’re strong and powerful. Nice! (:
April 27, 2012 at 11:26 am
The goal of a portrait is to capture the essence of an individual, of which this photograph is a fine example.
Yes, I see the O.Bloom resemblance and even a dash of Depp, but–to me–he brings to mind a young Eugene Delacroix, a master of portraiture…click on my name and see.
April 27, 2012 at 12:03 pm
Because with men it all in the details, usually one detail highlighting their great style and strong beautiful faces.

April 27, 2012 at 5:19 pm
Great picture. We may be looking at him as he looks at us, sometimes with a slight smile.
April 27, 2012 at 5:33 pm
maybe they seem to be the best, cause they have nothing to hide. they ar simply real. :)
i’m waiting for new discoveries!
April 27, 2012 at 5:34 pm

Johnny Depp’s twin.
It’s the scarf that makes it, with the touches of blues and reds.

Do you think that this is because we are beginning to objectify men in the same way that we have objectified women?
April 28, 2012 at 8:50 am
I would have to agree!
April 28, 2012 at 2:45 pm
He looks awesome! His look is simply perfect.
April 28, 2012 at 3:43 pm
What brand is the scarf??
September 7, 2012 at 10:01 am
The scarf is a press gift of Christian Dior actually… :)
April 30, 2012 at 2:04 am
Is he lifting his eyebrow? Maybe it’s hte tilt of his head or the sparkle in his eye, but I feel like he’s doing the amused, one eyebrow lift.
April 30, 2012 at 9:28 am
Very nice portrait. Love the north african/military mix.

Una fotografia veremenet belle e interessante, complimenti
May 6, 2012 at 11:02 pm
another awesome pic! i always wonder what kind of hair product they use in order to create that shiny/glossy yet classic look…. any advise anyone? :)
September 7, 2012 at 9:54 am
Hey Dom, the hairdo is really easy.
You have to blow-dry them up with a brush after washing. They will hold up by themselves, but you should fix them with a bit of “wax” – I use the german product “Strandmatte” by got2be.
Depending on your hair structure you have to use more or less amount of the product. The hair will stay flexible yet controlled. You can easily fix them back up with your hands. If you want, you can put a bit of hairspray, but key to this hairdo is to keep them flexible.
Hope that helps… :)
May 17, 2012 at 9:05 am
Such a beautiful face!
May 20, 2012 at 2:58 pm

This is one of my all time favorite portraits of yours. I love your work! The way you can capture the essence of someone’s style in a single photograph is truly brilliant.
May 31, 2012 at 3:47 pm
I can not believe! I think I know this guy. The photography is amazing, but this guy is also charming.
