and to be honest… I’m lightweight surprised how these pics came out and also understand again, Rumi Neely is a very big deal in the blogosphere and fashion world and I’m a nobody in that world. Not only am I a nobody in that world, I’m not a photographer and she’s been shot by many professionals including Terry Richardson etc… so for me to be asked to shoot her for a post on her blog was not only super random, but totally awesome at the same time….
it’s crazy because this was the first time I ever shot anyone. and me and Rumi’s first time shooting together. so damn… this is 1 of about 3-4 sets that will go up on her site that is ranked super high on alexa traffic ranking data and just a heavy traffic site period. I have only used the DSLR to shoot jewelry and random shit fucking around… but we did some semi legit location scouting and we went all over areas of LA she hasn’t shot before.
I can’t wait to see the rest of them….
ok, to most of my followers, you don’t give a shit. I’m hyped though. haha
if it wasn’t for my wife I wouldn’t even know who Rumi was, but since my wife loves fashion, Rumi has been a big fashion inspiration to her… pretty cool regardless.
