My sweet little Jackson is the purest, most innocent little 6-year old on the planet. He’s already an amazing little drummer, and he just finished having the role of his life being one of the little worship leaders at his Vacation Bible School at his big church where his dad is a pastor and his mom is the lead worship leader… but Jackson loves turning on his rock star look for the camera -- or pretending like he’s making an album cover. It was when I noticed his little superhero "tattoo" that gave me the idea. But, Methinks some people may be wayyyyyy too serious…. And Ken, you are so right! We giggled and had so much fun high-fiving each other over our accomplishments of capturing “the look” – and some of the outtakes are pretty funny. So, thanks to you guys who “get it” :)

Oh my goodness, this is hilarious. Reminds me of shots I used to do with J. Funny title, my little GQ has gotten big.

Brilliant. And of course the memories of making it as well. Portraiture is definitely your forte. Thanks for sharing.

He does look very GQ - pose, expression, tattoo, lighting. This is well done but shots like this of kids make me uneasy. Voted earlier.

LOL - I love this! Looks like an intentional "tough guy pose" which works great. Would like to see your outtakes - particularly where he is laughing or smiling. :) This is one of my top 3 picks. I think it will ribbon or come close. *fingers crossed*

Excellent shot. The tattoo is a nice touch.

From a technique standpoint, it's terrific. From an artistic standpoint it is terrific. From an impression standpoint - I don't like it. I know, strange, but that's the truth of the matter. But you gotta dance with the one that brung 'ya so if the technique and artistic framework are well done, it's gotta have a high mark right?

Abit creepy, but great lighting.

You captured the attitude very nicely. Lighting is good, lovely picture

This child looks so much more mature than his age

The tattoo really spoils this shot, IMHO.

He's definitely ready. Especially if they hire you on to photograph him.

Fabulous light.
