Last week I shot a “fashion shoot” for AlphaMom in my living room. I’ve done a lot of photography in this little one-bedroom apartment but this shoot actually felt almost professional. We had a real backdrop and some really cool mettaprints props (shown below) and Bug and our neighbor, Mohammed, are about as pro as it gets when it comes to modeling.
They are both pretty photogenic naturally but they’ve got the goofball posing down. Perhaps the I like to Move It, Move It and Gangnam Style music blaring in the background helped. Music always makes everything more fun.
Anyway, they both had a blast and are looking forward to making real paychecks (!) this time instead of the usual frozen yogurt treats that I usually pay them with.
I love our new Aspen Trees that we are now selling at mettaprints.com. We did them as a custom order for a client and then loved them so much we had to make more for the shop. It’s like I had my own “Where the Wild Things Are” in my living room. (In more ways than one.)
I had to stop the wild things from pummeling each other with pillows and taking down my cardboard aspen woodland.
But at the end of the day I gotta say it wasn’t a bad gig!
