James Pearson-Howes Captures Hollywood’s Brightest New Star, Paul Mescal

James Pearson-Howes recently had the pleasure of capturing Oscar-nominee and BAFTA award-winning Irish actor Paul Mescal for GQ Magazine. Famous for his role on TV series Normal People and movie Arc of the Sun, Paul arrived on set relaxed and was lovely to photograph according to James. James worked with a set designer to create an industrial and moody set design with textural elements and a Nineties vibe. He collaborated with the wardrobe stylist to create five looks that complement the set and the ambience. James often pitches to use film and GQ likes the aesthetic so they can experiment with double exposure to achieve a unique image unlike in digital format. We love the mood and feel quite star-struck by Paul’s commanding presence.
