I photographed Lady Gaga's manager, Troy Carter for Handelsblatt Magazine. Troy was great to work with and a really nice guy. The article was on black entrepreneurs and tech people in the Bay Area. We were originally supposed to shoot at Sightglass Coffee in the Mission, but they wouldn't let us shoot there. As we were walking around looking for a new location I noticed that this building and garage door perfectly matched Troy's outfit. It's always nice when plans fall through that something better pops up.
