Soho Shoot

3 commentsPhotography

Flash keyed from left and bounced to fill right.

After we wrapped the Vanessa shoot for Walk in Closet, Celia was hap­py. So I tucked my cam­era safe­ly into my back­pack and with that my vaca­tion began — or so I thought. As it turned out, the London weath­er con­tin­ued to get bet­ter. In fact it got so warm that at three a.m. when the clubs let out, girls would take their shoes off (as Britons are prone to do) and wade into the Trafalgar Square foun­tain with­out hav­ing to wor­ry about catch­ing pneu­mo­nia (or swine flu).

This was clear­ly an oppor­tu­ni­ty not to be missed, and since we were there any­way, damn it we decid­ed to do one more day of shoot­ing. Pressed for time, Celia pulled out her London con­tact list from her brand new BlackBerry and called every­one on it. About forty phone calls lat­er, it seemed we were set. Her hair­styl­ist friend Ahmed from Soho (’nuff said) booked her half a day with his friend Monica, a Brazilienne with some mod­el­ing expe­ri­ence.

In the belief that a pic­ture is worth a thou­sand words, I’ll end this sto­ry here and  invite you to look at a pho­to instead.

Can I be honest? In my opinion this image is slightly pornish....just my opinion=) I love every single other image, not so much on this one.

My point exactly! That's why we chose not to use them.
