Today was full of first time figure competitors, who also happen to be first timers in front of the camera.
A lot of you have heard me say before that beginners are some of my favorite people to work with. Not only do I get a totally blank slate but I also get to show them themselves in a way they’ve never seen before. I guess I could say that last part about everyone I work with just like any other artist that works with people. With absolutely new people it’s a very different thing though. It’s such an important experience because these images can completely change how someone sees themselves, so it becomes a tremendous responsibility…but also an amazing honor.
I love hearing people say “I’ve never really liked a photo of myself before.”
Oh, and the photo above was taken right before a grasshopper attacked.
See you tomorrow,
