This is a scan from the actual batch of old school Black and white copies that sat in a cubby at his agencies office.
In 2002 I had the pleasure of doing headshots for a young man named Benjamin McKenzie. It was a particularly normal session, we had ideas, we did the typical grooming, dressed for each “look” , (He did 4 looks) This shot from the 4th look was the game changing pic.
I got a call from his agent at that time Martin Gage of “The Gage Group”. “I want to thank you for that black tee shirt shot you did. We sent it in on a new series, he got called in and it looks like it’s going to be huge! It’s called “The OC”.
As the day Ben got the call that he booked the series, the day his agent called me was a true highlight of my career. I will never forget that.
PS Watch “Gotham” Monday nights on FOX!
