Lincoln Motor Company just launched their most recent round of MKX commercials starring Matthew McConaughey, directed by Gus Van Sant. I was hired to document on set. The images, which will be used for promoting the ads, were shot in LA earlier this year. Watching Gus Van Sant work was inspirational. He is a calm and constant presence, inserting himself only when needed. You can tell he has the utmost confidence in his crew and that he and Matthew have a real connection. I certainly hope I get a chance to shoot on his set again. The feeling stays with you …

You can view more photographs of Matthew on my website.
