I’ll never forget the night that I met Miné. She was sitting outside at a table with a guy I knew. To be totally honest I thought she was his girlfriend. “Lucky fucker”, I thought… and I left them to it. I’m not one to interrupt a couple who look like they’re having a nice time out.
[two_column]A short while later, he came over to ask me if he could see my photos online anywhere, at which point I told him about my site and my online portfolio, but I also told him that he could see the pics on my phone.
(On a side note, you should always keep a copy of your portfolio on hand. You never know who you’ll meet and when you’ll need to show it off.) [blockquote_left client_name=” JL”] always keep a copy of your portfolio on hand. You never know who you’ll meet [/blockquote_left]
Anyway back to the story; so as I’m telling this guy that he can check out the photos on my phone, I hear this voice pipe up from the corner table: “Can I see aswell?”
“Yes, of course you can!” I replied, and this beautiful woman came and seated herself next to me on my left.[/two_column]
[two_column_last]She soon began telling me that she liked my work and that she was also a model and had recently done her portfolio, but more importantly she wanted to work with me. We exchanged details and the rest is history.
It was still a few months before we got to work together, but I must say that having worked with her since, I find it very difficult to not compare working with other models, to working with her.
She’s fun and silly. She has great ideas and helps me get to where I need to be in order to make a shot work. She’s not shy and she’s amazing to work with. If I could, I’d shoot with only her, but I’m scared she’ll grow tired of me and then I won’t have my muse anymore… I guess the only way to make sure we work well together well into the future is to keep making sure that the photos we make together are ones that everyone talks about [/two_column_last]
Here are some pics that we’ve done together
