A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to fly to Helena Montana and spend two days with the wildlife artist Josh Elliott. While I am still working on the images from that 2 day shoot, I wanted to share some of the fun that we had.
It was about 7 degrees outside; and yes, that is cold. I shared with Josh, that I needed to hire an assistant to help with the lighting for the outdoor portion of our shoot. He told me not to worry about it as his friend, TJ Lynde and fellow artist, could help. While I didn’t know TJ, I figured that this would be fun and why not. Boy was I right. It was more fun then I ever could have imagined.
As we were heading out to the outer limites of town (which is not very far I must say), Josh pulled into the corner gas station and came out 5 minutes later with a 12 pack of cold brewskis. I just laughed. While I enjoy a good beer, it is certainly not a good idea for me to try and work, shoot and drink all at the same time. But that didn’t mean they couldn’t do it.
Thanks TJ for your help. Not only was it awesome, you were awesome. I hope we get to do it again soon!
