While in Chicago photographing this amazing new vegan, eco-friendly hair care line called USE ME, I drove by this park with these large cast metal legs walking, and I thought, I want to shoot there. I thought of the beautiful ladies with Use Me, but knew after 12 hours a day at the American Beauty Show, they would be too exhausted to do a shoot with me. ALTHOUGH it would be tons of fun. So, while shooting a video of a blow out demo for USE ME, I was sitting next to this lovely lady named Jackie. I started talking with her, as I would anyone. We got along fantastic and I asked her if she would model for me for an hour. She said sure. I told her to call me. She did. We had a fun fun time. I was up to my ankles in Chicago mud for most of these shots. But it was worth it. Connecting with someone who was a a complete stranger the day before, and having an awesome colaberative shoot.
I really really like Chicago. I would like to take my Lucia back there for a week and do and see all there is to do and see.
