don't mean to brag, but...

I hope its not just because i'm tipsy, but i'm feeling pretty sentimental right now.  A preface:  I get super annoyed with people who brag about their jobs, especially via facebook, updates like 'i feel so lucky right now to do what i do'.  It really gets under my skin, i just want to say, 'oh.., so good for you, aren't you just the luckiest little, cocky piece of sh*** rubbed in everyone else's faces'.
Most people that know me know that I like what i do. and right now, i'm feeling it. major.

Why? because i'm working with some crazy talented people.  The art director, Maryalice Eckart, provides unlimited inspiration and energy, while the photographer (to be blogged about manana) captures it all.
It makes for a very interesting and challenging day.  i'll post the pics when they come out. These are all  from Maryalices' portfolio.  which is awesome.

And just to be clear, it's not always like this.  There are some shoots where you aren't given any inspiration, nor do they want your input and you end up feeling like a scherpa.  which would be fine except i'm not climbing everest,  really just dragging bags into the studio, unpacking and repacking and leaving the studio.  the view isn't really as good,   nor is the air quality.


  1. Please, brag away! Your job sounds amazing and I would love to hear more. (agreed about the Facebook comments though. Annoying!)

  2. There aren't too many blogs that I take the time to read. This is one of them. Very entertaining. I refrain from the using the term "LOL" because of I winge when I see it, fact you make me laugh.out.loud.

    Just wanted to drop a note...keep it up! :)


  3. minus the "of" in the above sentence. Thanks.

  4. *blush*. thanks emily! YOU are an amazing collaborator. i'm stoked about our pictures! xoxo.

  5. Great made me LOL too. I love those red heels with the red cute!

  6. SO glad you have found your niche, E... I'm still looking for a good-sized crag that will accommodate my big bones. :)

  7. i just discovered your blog, and i am sooo jealous you got to work with jose. i would give anything to be a photographer for anthro (yes i call it anthro, and urban, too!). i am planning on moving to cali late summer and pursuing my dream to be a fashion/ catalog photographer. if you ever want to put together a fun session, i would love to take the photographs to add them to your portfolio! let me know!
