Coming off his wildly successful debut album release, Bruno Mars' six Grammy nominations were well deserved and his stardom was imminent. He was soon to be on the cover of every major publication in the world. Our goal was to capture this young, yet classic star, who's style and edge matched his musical talents.
The billboard ad ultimately ended up being a different image, but I was always partial to this cleaner version. We wanted to take his trademark upright piano to another level. Bruno sits victoriously atop a gorgeous vintage grand to represent his mastering of the craft.
The catering at the shoot was incredible that day.
