This was an interesting shoot. I was at a venue in South Florida for a gig that turned out to be a flop when the talented designer of this charming line of cover ups asked if I could take some shots.
The designer was not too fond of my pictures, I guess she was hoping for full body catwalk shots of her models in full stride. Most of my shots were rather cropped, by design...
Well…the catwalk was only about 20 feet long, sitting on the sand, and at my opposite end was a crowd of spectators… not quite the Karl Lagerfeld crowd, so to speak.
Talk about unreasonable requests.
It gets better, by the time I was done gathering my equipment, my pink Miu Miu slip-ons -which I had tossed aside while shooting- were nowhere to be found.I walked back to my car, after a long day, a gig gone bad, a dissatisfied client, my Miu Miu’s were long gone, barefoot on the scorching asphalt…but I was happy because I was doing what I love to do.
This one is my favorite shot, yes cropped, but it tells a story.
