Does Skripture speak to you?

Does it catch you with a hook? Well, this Skripture does. Today I had a photo session with actor/lyrical artist/model Skripture, a.k.a. Mike Foy. Who is this cat, you ask? You've probably seen him and heard him and enjoyed his work. Ever see The Shield on FX? Stamped it. Heroes on NBC? Stamped that one, too. How about the show Prison Break? Stamped that like a slap to the face! His music has even graced an episode of The Shield. He's got an album coming out soon called, "Legendary" and I am sure it'll be great. I was fortunate enough to listen to a sample today and it was smooth as silk. Loved it! Between the TV shows and movies he has coming out, I was psyched that he had time a photo op.

Today we collaborated to create some images that would benefit us both. We wanted to create something unique and knew it would be tough. On many of the television shows he's the 'bad guy'. Truth be told, Mike is a down to earth guy from back east who knows what I mean when I tell him that many of the California 'lakes' are really ponds, but we understand. He's laid back and super cool. Before the end of the session we had already discussed one or two more sessions with a different vibe. I am looking forward to them.

Mike, thank you for allowing me to shoot you today. I hope you had a great time and that you and all of you webbed foot followers enjoy the session. We certainly did.

These are AWESOME, honey! Although I love all of them, I think my favorites are 1, 2, 5 and 7! He looks ADORABLE in 5 (he'll probably hate that word, but it's a really cute image). Love this session!!

love the shots Al. thanks again. 7 is my favorite by far. sick shot. 1 and 5 are fresh as hell to :). 1 looks a lil light in the face but I know that's an easy fix. 2 has a nice effect on it. looks trippy in a good way :). 7 though is a perfect headshot. glad to see your wife and other people like the shots
