Lucky me (again) I was asked to photograph lots of models and gals from hair salons for an event called Care Couture, which is a fundraiser for cancer survivors. All the funds raised are given to directly to the folks that may need to purchase a wig after chemotherapy. This year there were over ten hair salons that participated and each salon provided the models. The salons did an amazing job – hair / make-up / concept – everything. I set up a back drop and lights in a side room at the club where the event was held. And weirdness – my light broke again – that happened last year as well, but lucky me (again) I have a fleet of prime lens’ that can basically see in the dark.

This event is created by an amazing crew that volunteer their time and energy – from the PR firm, the club manager, the DJ, lighting guy, photo-guy (me). This year I recruited a video guy, another camera guy and photographer that set up a photo booth – very cool. And there were dancers as well – to set the tone of the themes between the fashion show cat walk part.

The air conditioning was broken that night on a somewhat-more-than-warm-night in mid-June and I was stuffed in the side room with 20+ models, Denise (stellar assistant) and Bridgette (where did you go?) – and no one uttered a peep – no divas – no complaints. Me? I was sweaty as a mouse.
