A couple of weeks ago a long time friend and former Starbucks barista- turned - radio - DJ, Lydia sent me a text: "Are you available for a shoot tomorrow?! I'm trying to win a trip to SXSW with my best friend and we need a solid photo for the photo contest."
My response is always yes when it comes to shoot.
We had less than 24 hours to pull off a shoot that i would usually take a couple of days to plan out, prop, and light - and then i had less then five hours to edit and deliver the images.
It's cool, we work well under pressure.
Important lessons were learned on this day. Silly string to the eye is very painful, and there is definitely such a thing as over-use of confetti. I'll be finding it for weeks to come.
Sadly, they didn't win the contest - but they got some super awesome photos anyway..
If you want to see what the song behind the inspiration to this shoot was, check out the video below:
Allen Stone's 'Celebrate Tonight'
