Are you one of those people who watches “The Breakfast Club” and then wishes they went to high school in the 80’s? Or after you watched “The Fast & The Furious” you went into the gararge and lifted up the hood of your car only to realized you don’t really know what your looking at? Well I am, and I just watched an interesting documentary called “Picture Me” about a model (Sara Ziff) and her experiences in the modelling & fashion industry. Don’t get me wrong, I have zero interest in putting down my camera and putting on a Speedo! It’s the photography I am interested in.
It has always been a dream of mine to shoot fashion. However, up to this point I haven’t really done much to insert my self into that industry. Some where along the way I started shooting weddings and then that developed into a full time gig. I always thought to my self “I can shoot wedding and try and get into fashion with the rest of my time”. Unfortunately, shooting weddings is rather time consuming and there just isn’t a lot of time left over. With that my fashion photography dreams kind of hit the back burner.
So just as “Back To The Future” made me want to skateboard as a kid, seeing those fashion photographers on that documentary has reinvigorated my fashion dreams. Now lets see if I can do anything about it! 😉
Here are a few photos I shot last December with a girl (Lisa M G) I found on Model Mayhem.
