Last week I scooted up to North Hollywood to do a shoot for one of my awesome clients, American Music and Sound for Midas Consoles. Every so often they call me up to do an editorial shoot with one of their clients for the PR. In this case, Schubert Systems had purchased a couple of their awesome Midas PRO6 consoles, so up to their HQ I went.
Now Gabe, the cool dude I coordinate with at AM&S, always has his vision of the shot he wants. He’s very specific. This is great, because he always has good ideas and provides great direction. However, quite often it limits my own creativity. These guys are busy dudes dominating the music industry and I only get a few minutes of their time. So I have to be set up for Gabe’s shots and I’m lucky if I get a few extra minutes to play my own way.
Last week. I took the shots that were spelled out.
Then we started to wrap. I took down a light…and quick fired one off of Dirk as he was shutting down the consoles. I liked it so much, I made them get back behind the console and stole another one with the same lighting. A little more moody. A little more me.
So I ask you…how can you be a little more you? Try to make it happen today.
