Welcome back to another edition of my Urban Runway Monday blog. I am writing this story while sitting in the airport in Charlotte. This week I will be in Las Vegas for the WPPI convention. (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International). There is nothing like spending a few days with 8,000 other creative photographers from all over the world.
I met Alex at Studio 110’s photographer appreciation day celebration, put on by my buddy Murphy. It was another one of those “shoot outs” where there are other photographers from around Charlotte, along with make-up artists, aspiring models, and general fashionistas. Encouraged to come by her friend Keiosha, Alex tagged along, and wound up in front of my Olympus lenses as well as many other cameras.
Murphy had us all introduce ourselves, and then the photography fun began. Although I always remember faces, I sometimes fall short on names, and the nickname becomes my friend. With the perfect make-up applied for her skin, Alex had a golden glow about her. She looked, a bit apprehensive, but pretty with her wry smile, and piercing eyes. Knowing it was her first time, i said “come on Goldie, let’s go to work”. That seemed to break the ice a bit, and we got down to creating these fantastic image captures.
