For far too long…

13 Jun

I have been away from this blog for quite a while! No real excuse, just the same thing we all say… busy, busy, busy.

I had a shoot recently with a photographer from Brooklyn, NY called Dave Rudin. We had met before, but we hadn’t worked together until now. Our shoot location was fantastic, but I swore a blood oath (okay, not quite that dramatic) that I wouldn’t spill the location deets, because photographers are always trying to steal good each others’ cool locations. I will say this, Las Vegas is set right in the middle of some amazing desert. I’m not talking endless sand dunes from the tedious 1980’s film Ishtar (sorry my darling Warren…), I’m talking about beautiful red earth and gorgeous stone canyons. Come for the casinos and cheap buffets, but stay for the natural beauty and relatively few bugs.

The photo I’ve chosen to include may end up being my favorite. This is just a snapshot – Dave shoots only film, and he’s not finished developing. When he asked me if I could pose like this, I was sure I’d end up falling out other side of this hole. It was several feet off the ground and I had to lean way back to get the shot. My head is all that’s keeping me in there, but what a great idea!

    Thanks for the mention, Melissa, and for keeping our location secret, too! LOL
    It was fun working with you, and I look forward to seeing the results of the film.
