Purple Tapes Me

I was chosen by Purple as one of their 12 Trailblazers for 2009. They’re going to have a campaign/etc coming in a while with 10 minute segments of this uninteresting stuff about me. 😉 It was so funny – it felt awkward being in FRONT of the camera. I don’t mind attention, in fact – I LOVE it…. but not when it’s about me “talking about myself and my work”. I’m always feeling like I’m put on the spot when I do interviews and end up giving the most stupidest answers. Haha – you can see for yourself when they release them.

Here are some shots that I did while they taped me “shooting a subject”. That “subject I shot” was Shoshannah Stern (thank you being for my toy! (and double thanks for hosting, along with Ricky!)). I thought it was cool actually how Sho’s photo has the cameramen in them for a few. I think it’s kind of ironic because she’s actually the “star” and I’m just a mere photographer – but the cameras are on me. Kind of a twist at paparazzi turning on their own – Ha!

I love, love, love these photos I chose to post up. Sho has one of the most fun laughs/smiles I have ever been exposed to. No matter how silly she gets, it’s always fantastic captures.

Thanks to Purple for thinking I’m worthy of their campaign. It’s a nice compliment, I just feel so silly! I’m not saving the world or anything, but they did say – I inspire. If I do, great. I’m glad my “name” can take advantage of this money they’re giving away to us to donate to charity.

Anyway – check ’em out!
