I wanted to share with y’all a recent photo shoot I did with an awesome friend of mine Preston Mack. I first met Preston while working for Disney (at a photo shoot with my inner tween’s boyfriend Justin Bieber) and asked if he could help me out with some head shots for my personal use…ABC doesn’t let us use our show head shots for any work we do and I figured it was about time I stop using photos of me holding a drink out on a Saturday night with my friends strategically cropped out I enlisted his help and along with head shots Preston decided he wanted to test out a concept he has had his eye on.
After we did my head shots we headed out to a lake in his neighborhood where I was going to stand on a platform in the water to give the impression that I was walking on water. While I questioned whether or not gators were gonna chomp my ankle off, Preston went about taking test shots as if the malaria-filled mosquitos and hungry gators were NBD.
Needless to say, the end results are amazing! I had a blast working with Preston and his team and can’t thank them enough for working with me! Check out Preston’s blog for more info on all his photography endeavors (the guy has shot almost every athlete imaginable…he’s amazing!) as well as the sites for his team of wardrobe, make-up and hair!
