Groupshoots and Pink Lipstick...

Shot with a 67 year old lady a few days ago. Pink lipstick, totally covered in tats..... her and her husband have the largest collection of plaster fish from Key West - than anyone else in the world! Fish everywhere! They also had two rescued greyhounds and a handful of beautiful cars that I would die for....

Lori Mann is awesome - we took beautiful photos, ate cheese and crackers, gossiped about boys, and went out on the town for her boyfriend's birthday. And let me tell you, I needed a night like that.... it was like hanging out with my friends or something. People who are that open, are what makes my world go-round.....

I really enjoy being in this area and I am happy that I do so well with work here - Today I shot for that European clothing line and I actually attended a groupshoot based on me being the only model - Not going to lie, as fun it was - groupshoots just are not my thing. I, completely and totally, enjoy the connection you get in a one-on-one situation - to me, a photoshoot is not just solely photos ... It consists of conversation, a mood, an atmosphere, emotions, creative ideas - you build the way that photos are taken.... you remember the shoot and people that go along with it.....

Hey London. If you need a road partner let me know and I might meet you somewhere if you wanted. We could chat about it if you are interested.

You are nice Stanley - but my roadtrip partner needs to be gay or female... haha.... and that is just how it is. : )

I was one at the group shoot at Sly Horse Studios. Even thou a group does make it harder for both you and the photographer, it was still a wonderful shoot.

You are wonderful to work with and perhaps I will be able to arrange a one on one.

Here are a few pictures from the shot.

For a groupshoot - yes....it was a really great shoot indeed... and it seems that people (or at least you), got some killer photos that day!!! How exciting, I was not really sure how they would turn out....

But even in those photos, see how the strongest pictures you posted - have eye contact? I just want to have 20 eyeballs to stare people down at those things... ha. But then, I guess I wouldn't be getting hired as a model, it would be like getting hired for the circus or something... : )

It's been so long since I had a photo shoot with some of the qualities you mention: mood, conversation, atmosphere. I really miss it! Hope you encounter more kick ass people from now on.
