Patrick Stewart

Since first picking up a camera in the 10th grade, (21 years ago!) the person I've most wanted to photograph has surely been actor Partick Stewart. His role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation was so iconic, so strong, it is indelibly etched into our collective consciences. And, as my dad used to say, he made bald guys cool.
To me, this Shakespearean trained actor has one on the best, most dramatic faces and strongest presences out there. I've always know that if ever given the opportunity to photograph Mr. Stewart, I would do a simple, clean and dramatic portrait. I am elated to finally have captured the subject who has long been at the very top of my wish list.

Great shots Seth.
I too have always wanted to photograph Mr. Stewart. I want to photograph him in black and white.
May I ask how you got him to sit for you?
I live in the UK and have seen him perform many times.
