Kevin Kline Portraits

A few weeks ago, our editors at the New York Observer called with the opportunity to photograph none other than the actor and comedian Kevin Kline. A true professional, Mr. Kline was an amazing subject who was generous with his time and open to some of our crazier ideas. We owe a big thank you to our editors at the Observer as well as Kevin and his team for making this possible.

We shot a handful of options, both studio portraits and environmental setups. We had the luxury of shooting in the rooftop bar at the Archer Hotel, offering us beautiful views of midtown Manhattan.

And at this point you’re probably wondering where the cookies and milk came from. No this was not some clever prop that we had planned all along – it was a request of Mr. Kline’s. When we explained we were shooting him sitting at the bar and asked what he wanted, the answer was simple “milk and cookies.” Genius.

    Love the second picture. Great piece of work. Two lights on the studio shots?

    these are great! I understand the cookies and milk (in an abstract way) but what’s with the random glass of water over on the left?
