Looking at this picture you might not think it’s traditional.  However after checking the entry criteria I noted that to be considered contemporary it must have an unusual background or taken with a different perspective such as a the viewing angle.  Whereas traditional portraiture is considered to be well posed and pleasantly lit, which this is.  I set up the lighting to reveal his toned physique and added a little rim light to separate him from the background.
