PAW Dillon Karajanis
Some days are good.
To quote Ice Cube, which I think I’ve done in the past (of course I have, I’m as hood as grillz and the University of Miami), “Today didn’t even have to use my A.K. … Gotta say it was a good day.”
I arrived at Central to shoot prep of the week Dillon Karajanis, set up my lights, he came in with a dummy model (some guy named Lee or Gus?), I shot 10 frames or so and let them go.
Them fools was lucky I didn’t get too gangsta. Guess I gotta say, today was a good day.
This was a simple in and out shoot. The only real difference in the 10 frames was the positioning of the lights behind D.K. For the first few frames, I mounted them behind him and then I moved them to his sides. I liked the look from behind, so that’s what we ran in the paper.
I really have nothing to add to the shoot, other than it ranks as my fastest of the decade. I know, lame, but the photo is pretty cool and Karajanis is a good wrestler. In addition, I don’t think he cheated on his wife amidst great success, so that’s a plus, I suppose.
Below is the alternate from the shoot.
