Some month ago I had the pleasure to work with Tiger Lee.
I can still remember the excitement I felt when Tiger agreed to work with me...
At the time Tiger was working on a 2009 Calendar...
I took 2 weeks, 3 phone-calls, something close to 12 messages on model-mayhem to coordinate the phooto-shoot, that led to one of the best images I have in my portfolio!!!
And my first Published Work!
So this is how it went...
I googled the address and still got lost...when I finally arrived at the home/studio I dragged myself and my kit out of the car and rang the bell. I arrived prior to the Model and her Escort/Friend (Tiger has not problems with escorts/friends/audience etc...) Upon arrival I was greeted by Tiger and he led me to a small bathroom/changing room attached to the garage, and I started setting up.
Tiger has set up a whole Universe inside a garage!!!
Rows of clothing, weapons, Rum bottles and other pirate related props, even a souvenir form "The Black Pearl" from the movie!!!
All the magic happens in front of a white back drop with strategically placed lights a small black fan, and Pirate Rap from Captain Dan.....
The model arrived and we started to create the magic!!! Once Makeup and Wardrobe was done, the model stepped onto the white back drop and the music started! 2 hours later and 3 check late we had the images ready for review.
The greatest part was the finished image was ready for viewing approximately 72 hours later!
