"Monte Pittman is a multifaceted guitarist who is best known for being Madonna’s guitarist, as well as Adam Lambert, and Prong! Remember Madonna playing Pantera? Yep. That was him. So when the opportunity to do his new publicity photos came by, I jumped at the opportunity. He came out on a day off of the MDNA tour and we shot in and around my studio. It was an overcast day (which is the best for shooting outdoors) and one of my favorite shots (and his, as its currently his main promo image), was taken in the parking lot against the sky. I used two bare parabolic key lights and a beauty dish main at a downward angle to cast harsher shadows (as I really wanted to do something more dark and metal with this shot) Its F8 at a 200thto darken the sky and go for an all around metal feel for this image."
