I love going to New York and New Jersey to do photoshoots and networking. This particular trip to NY was more personable to me because my bestfriend came to town. She is one of the most beautiful women in the world and truly a natural at modeling...but this isn't her job at all. "Bella" is a college student who in majoring in Interior Design. When I say she is extremely talented she really is! She can draw, paint, sketch anything. I am blessed to know her and she is one of my biggest supporters. I wish there was a way to show off her artist designs she has created. She actually sent me a portrait made out of paper mache of my English Bulldog Krixus for my birthday. PAPER-FRIGGIN'-MACHE!!! Who does that?
Whenever Bella and I do a shoot it doesn't feel like work and it's a nice breakup from the norm of things. We literally walked for a long bit just talking and would just grab shots here and there. No lights, no reflectors, just stop take a picture, talk and walk some more. I already miss her and I know when I go back to Wisconsin later this Summer I will be doing a shoot with her.
....and it will be full of complete awesomeness...
Model: Intraventus (Facebook Page)
I was quite surprise with meeting with Intraventus. She contacted me a few months back during the winter solstice to shoot after she saw my work with Orla Rose. Naturally, a CoSplayer, I told her immediately that I no longer shoot coSplay. She let me know that she is now interested in shooting fashion related sets. So, it got me thinking and that thinking turned into building a concept that was easy to pull off and the images turned out great. We have actually decided to try and shoot again later this week.
In the meantime though...by the time you read this I will have gone to New Jersey to shoot with Genna Bee and meeting Chris M. Day for the first time. I said it many time before this is my make or break year. No time is being wasted. Stay tuned...
