Some photoshoots involve hair, makeup, expensive sets and even more expensive clothing. Other photoshoots are more simple, and this collection of images from Michael Epps certainly falls into that latter category.

This collection of images, aptly named ‘Misery Loves Company’ has model Gene Fedorenko looking pretty… well, miserable. It’s a cool collection of images, particularly considering its stark contrast to regular photoshoots.

Implications - Photographers continually aim to capture raw emotion to connect with viewers. This photographer captured anger in its simplest, most gritty form. Companies can take advantage of this opportunity by eliminating elaborate sets and extensive image retouching in favor of unfettered, minimalist photo shoots with a distinct emotion portrayed.
