I don't really talk much about my 9-5 job here, but since today's layout is about, I guess it's time. I am a marketing coordinator for a design firm. We do a lot of large scale planning and landscape architecture (not landscape installation or maintenance). Part of my job is work with a photographer and art director to capture the beauty of our work. Photo shoot days aren't necessarily easy - there is a lot of waiting for the sun, repetition, and sweat, if it's a hot day. But it's still fun to be part of that process...and the guys I'm working with make it pretty funny, too.
Last week's shoot was an early one since I had to drive to Rome. Let's just say I wasn't entirely happy when my alarm went off at 3am.
Then a quick drive in the dark to meet up with the guys and our models and set up the shot and then...waiting.
And wait a little more...
And some more...
Perfect! (unedited photo straight from my phone)
Needless to say, it's worth the wait.
And once there is sun, there is a bit more waiting, for me anyway, between shots and consulting with the guys and directing the models and so I had a little fun capturing Ralph & Bryan "in the wild" (I think the tripod is literally in the water at this point).
This photo was before we hit 900 degrees and 1,000% humidity. At that point it was to hot to even think about anything but get out of the sun and be finished.
After all of that I couldn't resist making a scrapbook page. I used Studio Calico's Sunday Sketch as a base (I just wanted to make it easy).
There you go! Happy Monday!
