Here's a guy who could be Will Smith's stunt double! Chris Waiters, a model with T.H.E Artist Agency, braved the weather to shoot this portfolio update on one of our coldest days. Check out some of our teeth-chattering, 15 degree shoot!
Since the last post I have been trying to concentrate on getting my photography portfolio going. As much as I love filmmaking, I also love fashion photography. An old friend of mine, Tao Thoma, asked me to shoot with him and his friend Chris Yu. Tao is an experienced Model/Actor who was showing Chris the modeling ropes. It was nice having Tao on set to set an example on how to pose. I don't really have an idea of how to direct a guy pose (since I am a girl and new at this). Hehe.
We shot the photos around downtown Boca Raton. For lunch, we stopped by this awesome little restaurant called The Cheese Course. I am a firm believer in keeping talent and crew energized with food! My favorite part of the day was having the boys climb this huge banyan tree I found. I also was lucky enough to work with Makeup Artist, Jaclyn Carmela! You guys should check her out; she is also a pretty rad model! Good times!
Fun Fact: The night before the shoot I had some chinese takeout with my grandma. We each had a fortune cookie after our yummy dinner. My fortune happened to say "Every artist was once an amateur." I don't know about you, but that kinda freaked me out!
