Two weeks ago I shot for the Girls of Absfuel Calendar. Absfuel holds a contest on Facebook where each month girls submit their photos for consideration. At the end of the month one girl wins a contract with Absfuel and is flown to the Fontainebleau Miami Beach has a photo shoot for the Absfuel calendar. The first 3 winners came down and we had an amazing day shooting them. The shots that made the cut for the calendar are top secret but this is one of my favorite out takes from the shoot. I hope model Ashley Brooke (who is meeting with a few agencies down here soon) likes the shot as much as I do!
A quirky wallpaper this week. Sort of reminds me of when I was a student at Rhode Island School of Design. I like the way it feels like a shot you would take when you first picked up a camera and started exploring. This was with my little point and shoot Lumix while I was at the barn my sister-in-law keeps her horse at. It was a great morning hanging with my niece and nephew as well. So one of these days I’ll get a chance to show some previews of all the work I’ve been doing! Three days into the week and I’ve photographed a singer, 3 models, and shoes already! Tomorrow and the next day are some much needed retouching days! Which means I’d love a friendly phone call from anyone to talk away the hours with me, any takers? anyone? no? Come on!!
In the last 5 days I’ve photographed, jewelry, shoes, an actress, a model, and an opera singer. There was no weekend for me. There wasn’t even time to think about it. Somehow, I managed to get the retouching finished as well on all but the Opera Singer (but we shot her yesterday so I feel like that is okay). Tomorrow I have two shoots booked, then two more on Friday. When it rains it pours doesn’t it? And since today is raining, and the shoots scheduled for today postponed, I will send this blog post out, cook something tasty that will take all day, and eat it with my friends tonight. Opening a window for Pintrest now, and enjoy the new wallpaper (it’s Ecaterina Andreev, the beautiful model I photographed on Sunday, she is signed with Elite Miami but heading to Milan very soon).
I love this shot from the plane to North Carolina. Does it inspire you to travel as well? Either way, have a great Wednesday!
There was almost no internet where I was this week. Considering that remember, there are only so many emails you can respond to while typing on your phone (sweet, sweet, computer keyboard… I’ve missed you). So only getting to the few emails that couldn’t possibly wait I’ve been catching up all afternoon. North Carolina in June is beautiful, but you’ll have to wait till next week to see some of it. I just don’t have any shots I can have ready in time for today’s wallpaper. So instead, here is a shot from a few trips ago of the California coastline (you could pretend that lighthouse is on the Outer Banks if you like). Enjoy!
I’ve been shooting like a mad woman, which is of course making me happy. But it also makes my blog empty. So my sincere apologies for that. Traditionally this is when I can’t post anything, but today, I woke up early so I could post this weeks wallpaper Wednesday before running out the door to my next shoot. This is a shot of where I wish I were instead of a in a warehouse somewhere shooting shoes (actually, I really like shoe photography, so it’s not 100% true, I should say “this is where I wish I were going to be after I finished shooting shoes). I photographed this down in Islamorada also a couple of weeks ago. Have a great week!
