I know, I know, it's been a few days...BUT...it's only because there's some SERIOUSLY cool stuff coming your way (I promise it's way cooler than my weird ass plastered all over the place). So we shot the first of three Lookbooks for our Fall 2015 vintage and custom clothing line the other day + I thought I would take this opportunity to let you know what goes on behind the scenes on shoots!
First off, I never show up in anything too nice. We shot at 5:30 am at an old horse racing track. That said, the grass was up to my knees and anything I REALLY cared about I made sure to keep at home. Now that's not to say I don't care about my Adidas Track Suit, I do! I wear the SHIT out of this thing! (Don't believe me? Ask my roommate). And I love it even more paired with my sneakers and Calvin's. It's the perfect outfit for shoot day, I can hold accessories and brushes in the pockets to touch up the models and zip all the way up or down if there's a change in location temperature. Definitely a set I can't live without!
Second, we never take anything TOO seriously. Look, things will happen. Clothes won't fit, things will spill (I dumped my ENTIRE venti cup of coffee as soon as I got to location), and people will be in bad moods. When that happens, all you can do is breathe and readjust. Trust in your team and keep pushing to get the best results possible.
Shoots can be fun, they can also be hell...we make sure to be prepared for anything and always keep in mind that we're shooting for you guys, we love you! I can't wait to share these clothes with you all, I know you're going to love them as much as we do!
Here's to the (almost) weekend, all the best guys!
