Yesterday my friend, Erin of A Simple Photograph
fame, arrived to start photographing the inventory for Hazlitt Vintage Rentals. Simply put, Erin is a creative genius. I can't begin to tell you how invaluable she has been to the entire process of this business. I can guarantee you that I will be referring to Erin many, many times in future blog entries.
O.k. back to the shoot. Thankfully it was a perfect autumn morning with a touch of frost on the lawn. More importantly my mate was home to help us carry/lug/heave most of the inventory for some fab outdoor shots. While Erin captured shots, Mike and I trotted items around. Erin would ask, 'do you have....?' And my reply was usually, 'yes, give me a second to find it.' OR Erin would say, 'it would be great if you had 30 of these.' My reply was 'I have 50.'
There would be moments when we would both stare at the collection, dreaming up ways to use it. Trust me, there are some great shots coming your way as soon as the snow starts to fly. I don't think I've ever been so excited to anticipate big white flakes dropping from the sky.
After all the running, carrying, heaving, gathering and shooting, Erin had taken a lot of fantastic pics. We retreated indoors for some apple cider, quesadillas and the last bit of my chocolate birthday cake.
Browse through the site and see what inspires you for your upcoming event.
There are many more pieces to come. I just need to find time to pull them out of storage.
