On every job/shoot you must always be prepared for something to go wrong. I preach this to my interns, assistants and even to the students in my CreativeLive workshop this weekend. Today the unexpected happened while taping the CreativeLive show. One of the shows video cameramen had an incident and had to be rushed to the hospital. We later learned he was okay and released to go home and rest. Being prepared for the unexpected helps you deal with lifes challenges when they happen. Working in New York City teaches you to be prepared for the unexpected because it happens all the time. Thank you to all those around the world who witnessed today's incident and sent your prayers and well wishes. We all appreciate your kind words and concern.
It was great having Chase Jarvis come by the set today and being able to sit and talk candidly about the photography business one on one. If you missed day two make sure you catch the repeat available now CreativeLive.com
Tomorrow is our third and final day of the workshop and our focus for the day turned to the world of fashion photography. Our "hero" for the day is the wardrobe, or simply put, the fashion. Step one in creating the idea for shooting our fashion story is to have a story board, so I worked on creating the story board before coming to Seattle. Tomorrow we get to bring our concepts to life. Make sure you tune in to our final day of the workshop devoted to fashion and beauty.
Finally, a big thank you to Nozomi for turning my horrible stick-figure drawings into incredible story board sketches. I look forward to speaking to you all tomorrow!
Always Dream Big!
