So I am at this urban upscale pizza joint called Slice. I am there with a couple of my favorite models after a later afternoon photoshoot. We’d stopped by for a beer and a slice to unwind. One of the models, a brother named Lewis, couldn’t help to notice that I noticed a beautiful sista with gorgeous locs sitting at the table next to us.
“You want to shoot that don’t you?” Lewis asked.
“Huh?” I said.
“You’ve been talking about this most of the day.” he returned. “Women with locs and naturals and curves…how you want to shoot’em and create hot images of them…all day.”
“Yeah, I know but I can’t just go up there and ask her for a shoot. It’ll sound like I’m coming on to her.” I told him.
“Not if I do it for you”
And he did. The rest is history.
Danielle’s driving passion is helping people. Along with being a professional social worker she is also writer who is putting the finishing touches on her first novel and is well into 4 others. You can check them out on her website.
I took her to a joint that, at the time I had only recently discovered called Mas Camp. Its a Caribbean hangout that I really liked because of the colors. I host a regular meetup there now called the Shooters Lounge for my fellow Photogs and Models. I like the images but I wasn’t sure she enjoyed it. She later told me she did, she was just a little shy because she’d never done anything quite like that before. Soon after I found out she LOVES being in front of the camera. Now that we’ve done our first shoot, l look forward to shooting her again soon.
