I first met Olivia at a CMG shootout in Charleston SC. A few months later when my work schedule took me close to her hometown Chattanooga TN, I contacted her and we arranged a shoot after work. She chose the location downtown, the outfit, styling, makeup, even the transport. I provided the camera and some extra light.
At the last minute my schedule changed, and we were left with just one hour of shooting time. With rapidly changing lighting conditions, we quickly worked through a series of poses and angles, and ended up with a very nice set of pictures. She was looking for something a “little edgy”, I was trying for a fashion look with some dynamic poses. I think we nailed both.
A thoroughly enjoyable and productive hour.
I was due to travel to Charleston SC the weekend of Sept 20th for a model / photographer shootout. As the date crept closer, the weather forecast kept on changing with Saturday varying from 10% chance of rain to 80%. Faced with the prospect of a 10hr round-trip, possible bad weather and worse, maybe no models, I was considering withdrawing when the event was officially cancelled. Suddenly I had a weekend alone at home with nothing to do. Putting aside my disappointment, I now had a perfect excuse to update the website and other overdue “stuff”. It took me longer than I thought but I’m almost there! See the updated gallery here…
