Steven Tyler by Richard E. Aaron

Aerosmith, Steven Tyler. I was on assignment for a magazine, I went with the reporter to a hotel room in Los Angeles where he did the interview and I always shoot photographs of the interview after, I listen to wha tthe artist is talking about and maybe I can incorporate that in the shot. We were in a hotel room that was really tiny, there was just nothing that I can place him in, I noticed that to the outside was a balcony and the sun was hitting the above balcony and casting a shadow right across so it was like, light and dark, and I said that would be king of interesting, so I placed Steven there and of course he popped a cigarette in his mouth, smiled at me and said, start shooting! And I did and I got some really good shots on that day.
