Behind the Scenes of a Star Wars Portrait Shoot for TIME Magazine

Comment

Photographer Marco Grob was recently asked by TIME magazine to do a portrait shoot with the cast of the new (and highly anticipated) Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens. The 3.5-minute video above is a behind-the-scenes look at how the shoot went down.

Grob went into the 2 weeks of shooting across 4 cities in 3 countries without any special knowledge of the new movie’s storyline.

“Sometimes it’s good not to know too much,” Grob tells TIME. “I wanted to have a feel on its own, to kind of do my own thing [instead of] being influenced by anything I would have seen.”
