Troutt in a Mountain Stream
November 14th, 2016
In May 2015 I was finally feeling better after my health issues. Not completely well, but better. And I got a chance to head down to one of my favorite places on the planet, The Smokey Mountains, and work with some models. I quickly found that hiking was still a bit of a challenge for me, but I managed.
And there was a special treat on this trip. For many years I had admired the work of a wonderful model who lives in Asheville, NC, Melissa Troutt. Our paths had never crossed, but I’d always thought I’d enjoy working with her. So, when I knew I’d be heading her way I contacted her and we arranged to meet up in the mountains and work together for a day.
As you can see, Melissa completely lived up to her reputation and we had a great time working together and producing some fine photos. I’m glad I got this opportunity to work with such a fine model because since then she has announced that she is retiring from modeling. I’m sad that I may not have another chance to work with her, but happy that I at least got in one shoot before the opportunity passed.
Thank you, Melissa. It was great to meet you and work with you. I wish you all the best in the future. Be well.
