Those who know me even in passing know I can never pass up a good drink. It was through that love of drink that led me to befriending Eric Lorenz, perhaps the most knowledgeable agave spirits expert in British Columbia. After he helped me on a business project last summer, I agreed to make it up to him with new headshots, which was how he came to be in my new home studio with two bottles of mezcal to share. The image above was shot on a Canon 5D Mark II sporting a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L USM with a single Profoto AcuteB Head on softbox at 45°. More on Eric can be found at his website, Lorenz Agave Spirits.
