It was an amazing day to photograph the six sexy young black professionals that are so more diverse than that larger professional workforce. Putting the six together to achieve this outstanding cover was for sure reaching for higher goals.

I used Speedoron Strobes 2400 pack lighting with a extra large soft box in front and a Speedotron 102 head with a 7" reflector at the back to create a highlight on the hair.
