ya got 30 minutes, now shoot

Often times, when we are shooting a high profile subject, our time with them is limited. Such was the case for my latest cover shoot with Wired Magazine. Shot by famed photographer Nigel Parry, we had 30 minutes total for wardrobe, grooming and shooting our subject. I sort of love these kind of shoots where everything has to be completely dialed in; I guess its an exercise in editing. My wardrobe pull is highly curated, not a lot of stuff, just the right pieces.
Here are a few pics from our early morning editorial. Blurred effect on the subject's face-of course; and a pic of makeup artist Erin Skipley, photographer Nigel Parry, and myself. And yes, I had Mr. Parry sign my copy of Sharp, one of his beautiful photography books, that now sits proudly on my coffee table at home. Look out for the December2011 issue!
