Shelby G.......We All Float Down Here! (Well at least one of us does)
Yes I realize that the caption of this blog will make you think of scary as all hell clowns and for that I do apologize. With that being said I hope you can find the funny in it as well. I know that my subject Shelby can and she was the one freezing her tiny little hiney off for this entire shoot.
Sometimes there are creative itches that just need to be scratched. Hence this fun little collaboration with Shelby and my good pal and videographer extraordinaire, Kyle. Kyle had a prop from a film that he'd worked on collecting dust in his back yard and we decided it would be pretty cool to fill it with water and submerge some poor young beautiful soul within it. Enter Miss Shelby Griggs! With makeup and other finishing touches provided by the brilliant Midori, we utilized two set ups, one indoor and one outdoor, and what you see in front of you are my images from both set ups.
I can't say enough about Shelby and her steadfast professionalism and overall bubbly attitude in the midst of a freezing cold environment. We were constantly heating buckets of water on a stove to add to her enclosure to make it tolerable. In spite of the weather making the water colder faster than we could make it warm Shelby gutted it up and was soon rewarded with a warmer environment in doors. These type of shoots sound good in our heads but can always deliver less than fine results given the elements provided but thanks to my kick ass team I couldn't have predicted a better outcome. We hope you enjoy them!
