So I got a chance to do a behind the scenes shoot of Kerri jean photography doing a Burlesque themed shoot and this was not your average photo shoot with a girl or two. This was around 15 models around 5 hair and makeup people. 2 assistants, maybe 3, Kerri and me documenting the day. by day we had the Focus on studio for 8 hours. that is a long day of shooting. I wound up heading out to Keri's studio ahead of time and picking up some stuff for the shoot and then helping get things loaded in and ready to go.
To be honest my day was easy I had the easy job, I just got to hang out. and shoot photos of the girls and guys in the background and document the day. Some of my friends complain that I have a great job, and on days like this I'll be honest, I agree and find it very hard to argue.
nothing like trying like trying to avoid bad shadows when you have 14 people all tightly together. To be honest I don't know how Kerri does it, finding the looks for each model. the styling the hair the makeup. she had a board with each model with outfit hair makeup so everyone new what they were to look like, she had diagrams of the sets made up so everyone new where they would be shooting, she put a lot of work into this day and it came out great.
So, how many hands do you need to adjust a dress?
Apparently 6 is the answer.
Definitely a tough day for me dealing with these girls always playing around and having fun, tough life I know. But someone has to be there to document the day and I happened to be there.
I came out with a lot of great shots for the day. There was no drama and with 20+ people in a room for 8 hours that's pretty good. I got to work with old friends, meet some new friends and have a good day. Props to Kerri Jean for putting it together and pulling it off and thanks for inviting me out for the day.
