It appears that I’ve fallen into a pretty predictable pattern with these blog entries. That is, I don’t do one for months, then lead off with noting that I haven’t don’t one for months. Oh well.
I started off the season not planning to do many underwater shoots. My plan was to focus on a few special projects instead of shooting numerous individual models. Why? Primarily to break things up a bit. In the end, however, it seems like I did far more shoots than I had planned, though not all of them are represented in my galleries. There were a couple where I was just lurking in the background while another photographer shot and I didn’t end up with many interesting shots. I might still put together a Miscellaneous gallery of random things.
But, the galleries that I have posted include:
- Lydia 2011. This was an unscheduled shoot that happened because the intended model had a ferry snafu and wasn’t able to get into Seattle in time. (Note: as of now this gallery still has a password on it; I need to get a couple things cleared up first.)
- Stripped Screw Burlesque. Earlier this year, SSB contacted me and asked about doing some underwater portraits that they could use on new business cards. I happily agreed, with the provision that afterward they stick around and pose for some additional shots.
- Roxie Moxie. I originally shot Roxie with the rest of Stripped Screw Burlesque, but due to an odd combination of events her photos did not at all turn out. So, we quickly rebooked and had her come back for another session!
- Wiggly Stardust. Wiggy is a local burlesque artist who I had seen perform several time but whom I had never met. Roxie made an email introduction and I was able to get Wiggy in for a shoot right away (which was a good thing because the season was quickly coming to an end).
- Michele Francis. Talk about sneaking in under the wire! It was the very last day of possible shooting, another photographer had already shot one model and I had just taken down the set pieces when Michele stopped by. She had brought such great outfits that were going to look fantastic in the water, so I set everything back up and resumed shooting!
So as I said, not many galleries but that’s OK. It’s not always about quantity.
