    Default Portrait of Leonard Cohen

    I posted this on the blog but I thought I'd share it here as well.
    Leonard Cohen is one of my favourite artists and I was lucky enough to get this shot a few weeks ago.

    Thanks travis. Nope on the candid, I was actually lucky enough to meet him just for a few minutes a few weeks ago. He was gracious enough to let me take a few shots and i asked him for this pose. I also have a shot of him posing with my sister - it's so cute. She was TOTALLY starstruck. We saw his concert that weekend in Saguenay QC. First row floor. Totally wicked-good concert with something like 15 standing ovations. The other musicians were also spectacular!!! It was a great weekend!!

    Very well done. Looks very good, lucky to get a chance to get a photo like that, good going. A definite keeper.

    Hey everyone just thought I'd share. This month's (December 2008) Uncut Magazine (a British music magazine) used this as a full page image in their feature on the incredible return of Leonard Cohen. Cool eh?
