TOM ELLIS | BOSTON MODEL / DANCER / HIP HOP ARTIST

The story of how Tom and I became Social Media friends is almost still a mystery to this day. Two years ago I had only been in Portland Maine living out of a Hotel as I was trying to find a house to buy, so I guess you can say that I was hustling super hard to connect and find clients. 

We talked about doing some video and shots that winter, but things didn't pan out. That winter had come and gone and another winter came and we started talking about it again, but the again nothing came to happen. Then on Dec. 18th. (Basically Winter) We talked and It happened. Tom Was ready, I was ready and all the two years of ideas and collaborations was about to pay off. 

Here is Toms Commercial Session with me. This was his first time in front of a camera, SERIOUSLY... FIRST TIME IN A STUDIO AND IN FRONT OF A CAMERA!  After my standard coaching and quickly getting him to relax we took this to that :) After that it was all fun - hope you enjoy the images! 

I'm an Internationally Published Photographer from Los Angeles and now in Portland Maine. I own a Small Digital Creative Agency with clients from the West Coast to East Coast. I've been doing Photography for a couple years now, but have a long history in Film/Television and Radio. I'm pretty passionate about espresso and making latte art. Follow me on Instagram (SurJones) to see a peak instead a my daily hustle!
