She Is Gracie Lou

Big production shoots are great and I do a lot of them. There are stylists, hair and makeup artists, gaffers, grips, producers and production assistants. There is catering, motorhomes, police officers on motorcycles closing down streets and all types of production vehicles. But while all of that can create opportunity for creativity to take place, it doesn't make for it. Creativity, for me anyway, comes often from the simplicity of using only two tools - a camera and my mind. However, I love shooting people so much and capturing feeling and emotion, that it almost always requires connecting with another. This was one of those simple situations where it was the most minimal of productions, but the most fun in a creative sense and the work is so simple and clean and fresh and ultimately what I truly love about doing what I do. Thanks She is Gracie Lou for having me come out to play.
