30 May Woodstock New York Portrait | Lucas Handwerker
I had the pleasure of meeting Lucas Handwerker several years back and did some really nice shots of him in the studio. Cut to several months back and I get an email from Lucas wanting to use one of the images on a bill board for his upcoming show at the Woodstock Playhouse. I agreed to send him the image and I knew I wanted to see the show as well. Lucas describes himself as an actor playing a psychic. Well this is really a simplification of what he does. He uses his knowledge of human tendencies, body language and a very focused intuition to guess and trick the audience. His show was so good and lucas was so on point for such a young man that I came away from it not only amazed by his performance but really jazzed to photograph him again as well. So I messaged him a day or two after the show and told him I wanted to work with him again, and happily he agreed. We met at my place again, but this time I wanted the shots to feel more timeless and maybe even bit older in era and style. We had a great session, Lucas brought some of his stage props to the shoot which was cool. I love so many of these shots, I’m only showing my top faves but there were more. Enjoy the images. Check out Lucas whenever he is performing, guaranteed to not disappoint.
