Billy Gewin, Musician and Songwriter Portraits

I met Billy Gewin several years ago and have wanted to photograph him ever since. Billy is a talented singer and song writer who has put out at least 3 albums. He plays several types of guitars and can mix music the old fashioned way with a huge sound board. He is a genuinely interesting guy who is not afraid to let his personal  thoughts and feelings to be known.

I had about an hour to try to get some good shots. We took several photos in his home studio and basement. Then I decided to take advantage of the fact that he had not mowed for a couple of weeks. Wonderful green clover and tiny purple flowers made the front yard look like a beautiful meadow. The illusion was created by depriving the photos of any suburban clues.
