Someone asked me recently “How do you meet these models you shoot?” The standard answer is through social media. I met Holly thru Instagram. She happened to like one of my smoke shots of Delaney from this summer. I reached out, crept on her profile, and we opened a dialogue. After a little bit, we set a date to shoot.
My smoke sessions are fairly labor intensive. Angie helps me with lighting, as she does on most shoots. My buddy Clem handles the pyrotechnics. He gets what I am trying to do artistically, so I value his input and trust him to help make the models look good. Posing and wardrobe is generally up to the model. Holly brought some ideas to the table on that front, I trusted her experience in that area.
Holly is professional. She never stops moving. She’s not afraid to try new things, she’s open to new ideas, and she’s got balls the size of Texas. She’s a lot of fun to shoot, and even more fun to spend time with. We all shared a whole bunch of laughs the day we did her smoke bomb session.
I’ve picked a fresh edit to share with you folks here on the blog. There’s more on my Instagram, and I am pretty sure Holly has more on hers. She’s on instagram at h.monroe_model. I look forward to shooting with her in Boston on December 2.
I still have a couple openings on December 1. This is a great opportunity for killer images for your portfolio or as a gift for that special honey in your life.
