Steven Tyler - This is another shoot where the assignment was mission impossible: a small, boring location and a short period to shoot in. In this situation, you have to think creatively. Use what's at your fingertips. No time to whine. I was assigned to shoot Aerosmith for a national magazine during one of the band's cross-country tours. Holed up between shows in a hotel, I had only 20 minutes to get the photo. Turned out that the hotel room was so small it was impossible to set up a mobile studio. I glanced outside to the balcony and noticed there was an extreme light angle due to the overhead sun. I positioned Steve in accordance with the lighting and stuck a cigarette in his mouth for a few shots and Joe for the others.
