Tim got in touch with me a few months ago about doing a shoot together. Although he didn't plan on shooting anymore "models" for this particular project.. he wanted to get this last shoot in with me. Of course I was honored after seeing his work (and EXTENSIVE Clientele'), and gladly accepted.
We shot in the Posh Mondrian Hotel off of Sunset Blvd, Hollywood in a Deluxe Studio suite. As soon as I met Tim and his kick ass Makeup Artist Haylee, I knew this was going to be an amazing shoot. Not only was Tim welcoming and extremely professional, but he has the most interesting and well thought out idea's.. always asking my opinion before making final decisions. Haylee was quick and on point, sharing her opinion with Tim & I as well, which you hardly ever see. We were a collaborative team on this project.
Tim has an incredible way of working. He has a vision, and makes it happen. Tim also has a totally different way of doing each scene, shooting each idea with a specific song/artist playing in the background. This way of shooting was fairly new for me, and totally changed the vibe (set the mood) which was really helpful! It made for a very smooth transition when I was "changing character" for each scene.
The shoot went into the evening and ended with a few scenes including a few of my drum pieces. I can't wait to see how it all comes out, and definitely can't wait to work with Tim again in the very near future. I highly recommend Tim as a Pro Photographer, plus he's an awesome dude to know and totally REAL (which is rare to find in this industry)! Thank you Tim & Haylee, you rock!
Look out for a 1-on-1 interview session w/ Tim Courtney and I after the shoot on AB Reality Series!
