things i love about this shoot:
#1- i got to work with my most favorite photographer Ian Ruhter, (who also happens to be one of my most favorite of friends as well) and be a part of his huge crew of talent...it took around 30 people meshing their skills for this shoot for Heavenly Resort in Lake Tahoe...
check out his how he pushes the envelope (right off the table) with his brilliant work at: ianruhter.com
or for the even curiouser, peek into his blog at: ianruhter.blogspot.com
#2- i got to have a team of hair...my friend Bettina that worked on some tv shows with me...and 2 assistants for her..and I had 2 assistants...well, one couldn't ride his vespa up the mountains...so really just one...i like it when I get to have a posse of my own
#3- i got to do fun make-up...like putting on double sets of eyelashes... this is a trick that gives the eyes that brigette bardot look (like the old Guess ads with Claudia Schiffer and Anna Nicole Smith) and this is a trick that Pamela Anderson requests for her sexy-mamma-cat-eye look
Ian had given me some references for the make-up from the pictures in W of Angelina Jolie (the ones where they look like a family from the 50's)...and I love doing make-up from the 40's and 50's....it was so pretty...and girls look beautiful...it was fun to bring in modern tricks like the double lashes....don't try it if your going out...it feels like 10 pound butterflies have landed on your eyelids
