I’m Tired

February 26th, 2010

Sorry it’s been so long since my last post. I’ve just been too busy and too exhausted to sit down and write anything. Between Dave Rudin’s week-long visit and working on getting the new studio ready for shoots I’ve not had much spare time. But I’ll try to catch up in the next few posts.

First, there’s the week with DaveR. After we got back from Chicago Dave worked with several models who I had suggested to him. Here he is in my new studio working with Ophidian Marie.

Rob represents me through his gallery and has shown my work there practically since he opened. Of course he liked Dave’s work and kept several prints to put on display.

As some of you may know, Dave tends to work pretty slow. We joke that when we are shooting together I’ll fill up a memory card while Dave is setting up his tripod. Well, he wasn’t a lot faster out in the snow. Here it looks like Angie is praying that he’ll finally take the damn photo so she can get her coat back on.

    I recently had to pose in the snow – so props to your models! It was all day of running in and out of the coat and trying to dodge spectators.
