During the super bowl weekend, I was asked to help style a fashion shoot for black and grey magazine. Declining the request would asinine due to the fact I have been eager to work with my colleague, Bil Brown, within the past couple years (on my trinidad james shit, “mama always told me,boy count your blessings). All jokes aside, we have finally manage to find the appropriate project to do so!
I got the chance to meet the models, make up artists and assistants for the shoots. Majority of people came different parts of the region (i.e. Indy, Nashville, etc.). The shoot could have not performed any better . Despite we have worked a little bit late (happens frequently at shoots), everyone worked in a complete harmonious fashion. The meeting of the minds started to ignite as each one of began to create snowball effects of creative ideas for the shoot. It was practically improvising along the way (kinda)… There were no ego; instead, it was just a group of people doing what they love!
Besides working with everyone, I got the chance to work with my sister, who was the hairstylist for the project. Unfortunately, this is our first project together. Personally, it was breath-taking because we never get the chance to do much because of our hectic schedules. I was glad she had the ability to work on such short notice. Overall, the shoot was a success. This was my first styling project for the year! Off to a decent start and I will not be stopping any time soon.
