TI was opening a new nightclub called Tangerine with a burlesque-themed lounge. I wanted to imagery to be simple and sexy. I directed the shoot with the model, getting various poses that I later composited to interact with the circular logo. I had to fight to keep the images black and white, explaining that the orange logo would pop — that’s all they needed to hear.
