I have long admired the photographic art of Joe Oppedisano. He is a master photographer. I always find myself wondering how he maanged to get the lighting just so, or get that special effect and mostly how he managed to come up with the the many imaginative poses that his models take. How he fills the frames of his exposures is beyond understanding and yet fabulous!
Recently, Channing Tatum has posted these images that Joe took when Channing was only 18 years old.
Joe reminisces about the shoot in the post.
Below are some new and some older photos by Joe that I just adore:
Models include: Chase Hostler, Chris Porter, Derek Parker, Draven Torres, Marcus Isaacs, and Samuel Colt.
“Give yourself permission to be fabulous!”
