The Face of Peter Bogdanovich.

Tonight I shot and reported on the first annual Golden State Film Festival in Monterey.

Read more on that here.

The speaker of the night was classic American film director (and everything else) Peter Bogdanovich. He's a super nice guy with a very deadpan sense of humor.

I made a few nice portraits from the evening, which were easy because he had such a great face to photograph. 

For this first photo, I asked for only three minutes of his time and snapped five photos and said I was done. In a very straight voice, he says, "There's two-and-a-half minutes left. Now what?"

It was great.
