A Dangerous Irvine Portrait

I had an assignment to photograph a man Craig Monteilh. A man who claims to have been working undercover for the FBI, and he was talking about it. Cue up “Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress” by The Hollies…He was wearing a trench coat and dark glasses. I was wearing Dockers and maybe a shirt by Tommy Bahama. We met under a tree near a bridge. He kept look around like he was expecting someone else to show up invited or not.
