the first step was to find a sponsor to the 2012 Select Models Photo Cruise...
second step.. i had to make my way to the port!
so i packed up "my life" and after many phone calls, emails, and coordinating on my part, i was ready to say "goodbye for now" to idaho and hit the road for my longest adventure yet!
a couple stops leaving idaho....
Shoot Destination #1 - Seattle!
while there i took the advantage of the rare sunny weather and explored the city with friends, and even got a mani/pedi. after all, i couldn't very well do a model tour with less than perfect nails!
the dark and feminine work of Reciprocity Failure (now Gabino M Photo) had caught my eye months prior.. and i was excited to start my trip right with a short shoot with him.
then a day in Portland for more shoots as well as some Figure Modeling (love!)
and a final stop in Eugene for a long awaited fantasy adventure with Michel Savage of The Grey Forest
such amazing art takes time though. if you're not familiar with the amazing fantasy world that is The Grey Forest.. check it out and you will quickly see the time and effort that photos of Michel's caliber require. Enter The Grey Forest HERE.
