The weather in NYC the past few months has been a little erratic. During my time off, there were many days where a light jacket would do for neighborhood errands. It was bright and sunny for most of February, March, and April. The photo shoot for my book was scheduled for the middle of May, so I had hoped the good weather would continue. Then it started to rain, pour actually, almost every. single. day.
We had to delay the shoot until early June. The rain threatened us then as well, but we took our chances. The clouds in the photo to the left looked a bit threatening when we were at Grand Army Plaza, but thankfully we only got a little wet.
Even though it was an extremely crazy week at work, I managed to slip out for one day of the three day photo shoot. In my full-time job capacity, I have been to a few before, but never on location. It was definitely an interesting learning experience for me. There are so many details to think about, and for the most part, everything ran pretty smoothly.
The shoot took place in different locations in Brooklyn, some places that I had never even heard of before. Everything was very well thought out. The stylist was fantastic, makeup and hair was perfect, the photographer was excellent, and the Creative Director understood my vision. Sometimes is is hard for me to give up creative control, but I was in very good hands!
The book is scheduled to be released by Interweave Press next May and hopefully the date sticks! My excitement for the book was renewed after seeing my projects come to life on the models. I can’t wait for you to see the final outcome and let me know what you think!
