“I was doing some work down in Miami for IMG’s ‘New York Fashion Week’ Instagram around a Super Bowl street style campaign and I asked the very pretty girl you’ll see in the following images if I could shoot her ‘street look’. She agreed and was very nice. I snapped some of your average street style pics and when I was reviewing them I thought to myself that she had to be a model or actress as her self-awareness was something that I’d only ever encountered shooting some of the world’s biggest names. The client actually must have agreed as I was accused of hiring models for the campaign instead of shooting people off the street as required. This was not the case.
I had echoed the clients’ funny story to the girl off the street as I thought if nothing else that is a decent boost in self-esteem for anyone.
Anyway the Corona Virus Pandemic started spreading across the globe and work was slowly getting quieter for me so I asked the girl off the street if she was a model and if she would be happy to shoot a test with me on the beach one morning. The girl off the street said in no way was she a model and that given my resume she’d be excited to be my muse for a day.
The following is one of my favorite times behind the camera. Not only am I happy with the results from an hour in time one beautiful morning. Working with the girl off the street was like 2 people having one brain. I would think about the fact she needed to drop her chin to pull her face out of the light or something similar and before I could ask she had already done it.”
