A day shooting with Catherine Kwong for her portfolio took us to a number of wardrobe changes, all wonderful. I was and remain so consistently impressed with this woman, model and actress. And then she came out dressed in this and I just sighed. Oh my, so sexy, took my breath away. Maybe I shouldn’t say that, but I can, I am a professional!
The people I photograph take on a different look to me through the viewfinder. The camera changes things. And when it is so gorgeous or perfect, I have a tendency to let a little laugh. Models, who do not know me, are usually a little taken back, not sure what to make of it. They usually turn to Natalie Lyle my makeup artist, as Catherine did, and whisper “What does that mean?” ” Is that good?”. I sometimes don’t let on the I heard them, but Natalie just puts them at ease and says “That is really good”.
Catherine Kwong was amazing in this photo shoot and I am really disappointed in her for that. Because she made more work for me. I shot more photographs during our shoot than I have ever shot of any one person in a photo shoot ever before. Just last night she asked me, “Are you seeing images of me in your nightmares?”. Yes I do and I have no regrets!
