This was fun! Way back in the day there was this magazine called Ray Gun. David Carson the art director hired me to shoot legendary Morrissey for the cover. I wasn’t that big of a fan and did not know a lot about him. We did the shoot at Smash Box Studios in Culver City. It was simple and easy.
My favorite memory from this shoot was during the shoot the music stopped and I had to change the CD. While I was doing this Morrissey asked my assistant if Chris was a famous photographer. My assistant replied… NO, he’s good. I came back and things got a lot easier. By the end of the day I really liked him. He was so nice and so easy to shoot. Seriously made me look good. I love this shoot and all the great shots I got from it.
One last thing… many years later some guy got my portrait of Morrissey tattooed on his back! That is CRAZY!
