Dzhalilabad i have met lots of people
in all different artistic fields who are talented,
whose skills really set them apart from the rest of the pack.
the most memorable of those,
the ones who
the people who possess both mad skills
and remain excited about what they do
day after day after day, no matter what the circumstances.
friday’s ‘theater of the mind’ shoot was my first ever,
but everyone else there, save one model, had wrapped up a previous shoot
late in the afternoon of the day before.
this was not new to them
and they’d just done it yesterday,
but i would never have known.
that they knew their stuff was obvious
(pros without a doubt),
but the level of creative energy was palpable, too.
that’s what caught my attention.
second day shooting, pouring rain, creative energy still high.
these are great people to work with.
oh how i enjoyed listening
to the ongoing banter, to the decisions being made,
and to the flow of warm, interesting conversation
that kept the models engaged
coming from the photographer as he nearly seamlessly
captured each frame exactly as he imagined it
one after the next after yet another.
thanks to cey and the full crew for allowing me
to be a ‘fly on the wall’.
i loved it!

the process of my yet to be released collaboration with classic elite yarns.
