I’m outta here…

“Most of us are too scared to make ourselves stand out.” -Deb Pang Davis a.k.a. Cococello on Twitter earlier tonight (quoting Laura Roeder) My response was “I think terrified is a better descriptor.” I know. I am. So very. Perhaps it is the inherent photojournalist in me, to blend, be an observer, inobtrusive. The problem is … Continue reading

That’s a wrap…almost

After two long days of shooting, everyone was exhausted. Derek took naps whenever possible. Even while on "horseback"

This past weekend was long. Sixteen hours in studio, dressing, costuming, shooting. Sheer chaos but so much fun. I absolutely love big studio shoots. Especially when I have such a fabulous team with me. My usual AD Miss Elena Brown was stuck in London, but I had added a creative director, Melinda Piñon, a few … Continue reading

The first studio shoot for my novel was easy. (I’m already laughing at  that…but oh well). The second was just plain fun. The third was a fiasco of epic proportions and the fourth was fan-freaking-tastic. One of the the things about models and studio, no, scratch that. One of the things about female models and … Continue reading

All the chaos surrounding these last studio shoots has been exciting and laughable. I enjoy chaos to a certain point, and as a journalist have learned to thrive in it. At times I work better under pressure  than when I have all the time in the world. I have enjoyed this project immensely, and it all … Continue reading
