I haven’t blogged in a while, but I will be making an effort to do so more often. Seems like most people would rather look at Instagram so that is what I have been focusing on. 113k followers now! THANK YOU to everyone who follows me - much appreciated.
This summer has come and gone and its seems like it was over in a instant. So many shoots, and so much editing, when I look back it makes my head spin.
I am doing less and less “tests” and focusing on more editorials and my own projects now. I love shooting new models but there is no reward for doing tests, and I spend so much time working on editing that I am not able to do any real work. Doing “favors” for people is a waste of time for me especially when it is time for someone to return the favor, and they all of a sudden develop amnesia. I know it is part of the game, but I am playing by my own rules now. Saying “No” is not easy for me but it has become my favorite word.
I am still editing Hommeage #3…which is way, way overdue. The new issue features a story with Ray Diaz ( East Los High) and a collection of images from my shoots this summer. I should have it done by the end of this week.
I just did a new editorial for OUT.com that will be online in December. That was fun. 6 models, several different looks and done in 3 hours with several individual clothing changes and a group shot. Thank you TJ Rudy for setting it up and being so easy to work with.
I am doing a new editorial in the next week or two for another magazine. I am really looking forward to this one as I get complete creative freedom. I have my concept, now just have to find the right models and do it. Sounds easy right? Ha…you have no idea of the politics involved in giving models a job. Putting together this last editorial really tested my patience, but in the end it turned out great.
Okay, now its time to start editing. Until next time….
