If you weren't a photographer, what do you think you'd be doing? "I would probably be a social worker of some kind or another." Since then, Rowan has been clicking away. His website showcases a collection of black and whites and color photos with movement that creates dimension, and intense, evocative close-ups. Some photos even make me feel as though I am walking in on an intimate moment. Rowan's work is crisp, at times edgy, and simply beautiful. "I like to think I have a romantic view of the world around me, but what I think really separates my approach is all in the connection I make with my subjects. Without that connection translating in the photographs I think the work would fall flat," says Rowan. Can you recollect your first celebrity shoot? "One of my first celeb shoots was with Candace Cameron Bure. I got to shoot her second book cover and was so stoked on the opportunity her agent Jeffery Brooks from Red Rock Entertainment gave me." When asked to choose one of his favorite famous subjects, he names Donald Faison —the actor best known for his roles on Scrubs and Clueless. "He saw a light test shot of me and turned to me, slapped me on the ass, and said I was sexier than him. I died!" As for his dream shoot-subject, it's Stephen Colbert. "That man has been a longtime hero of mine and it would be a dream to honor all his hard work over the years by taking his portrait." The laidback photographer is having a blast living his passion – and is still making time to catch some waves. In addition to stills, he's been shooting music videos. "I'm shooting so many music videos this year and I can't wait for them to come out! It's been so fun making the transition from stills to video and everyone I have been working with has been incredibly supportive."
