Did you write the copy and cast this model?
Irvin Randle has gained Instagram fame by being the man behind #MrStealYourGrandma. This was an assignment for Cosmopolitan and part of their Internet’s Most Fascinating series. In addition to this shoot, I also flew to Charlotte the same week to photograph Ryan Lochte as part of the collection.
I spent more time driving to Houston than photographing Irvin. My assistant and I hit the ground running when we arrived and knocked out a dozen locations in about two hours. Irvin had a great attitude and was ready to go with his slick outfits. My assistant got a work out because in addition to helping me, Irvin kept asking her to shoot behind the scenes shots. Gotta get that fresh Instagram content.
