Iona Lynn

My San Francisco Trip was good. I scheduled with two beautiful models for this trip. Iona Lynn and Sarah Ellis.

Iona was wonderful to work with. She was an incredible location scout, finding great places to shoot well in advance of the project so our day was wonderfully planned with a variety of great locations. She is a photographer too, a trait that helped her spot these great areas to shoot in.

One of our first shoots was on the Beach in Pacifica, CA. Our location is now closed to the public due to the danger of erosion on the cliffs. Homes and apartments have been condemned or taken back by the ocean. The roar of the ocean droned in the background and a cool mist came from the sea. We were constantly on the watch for rogue waves that might come crashing in and soak the gear. We got some great shots and move into the mountains with the fog following closely behind.

Ginger Hansel Sinner Interview

Here is a video interview with one of my art models. After the work we did with Sarah Ellis I thought it would be interesting to interview the models and ask them a few basic questions. This is my first interview so please excuse my ums. I will do better next time.

Ginger Hansel Sinner

Ginger,Elsa and I did a masquerade shoot in the Historic French Quarter. We still laugh when we refer to it as the Ginger Whoooo Shoot. When we were shooting I noticed she had a very serious expressions. I asked her to try and visualize a happy moment. She got a funny look on her face in recognition, smiled, and threw her hand in the air and proudly proclaimed, " Whoooo!"

We all busted out laughing and I kept the camera rolling. This amazing dress was a product of my incredible wardrobe stylist Elsa Broadmann.

Sarah Sums Up the Project

Here is the tail end of the morning where Sarah sums up her experience:

It's good to be the highlight of the day, right up there with the dog.

Canal Street New Orleans

World Famous Canal Street. I want an image dead in the center of Canal street. We coordinate at the next meeting spot by Odyssey records on Canal Street. We arrived and our videographer had gone to the CBD location. I shot a couple of shots by the Record store because one of my clients is the owner. We moved onto the middle of Canal Street, and setup Sarah in the middle of it.

Further down the street we spotted a police car so we decided not to go to the full monty here. It was funny to notice in the images It appears the row of cars did not seem to move for at least three or four lights. We did not see that until later when we were looking at the finals.
