The world of social media is a funny one isn't. You can meet someone online and never meet them in person and yet still form a bond. So when I got the friend request from Kayta I didn't hesitate to press the confirm button. Before I new it I was checking her profile out to see why she wanted my facebook friendship. One guess and I was right ........she was a model and she wanted to test with me.
As I was browsing thru her pictures the word "when can we do it" popped in my head. I don't normally test models but when the occasion arise I jumped at the chance to shoot Kayta.
So for this editorial.........it's not about telling a story or keeping the pictures cohesive. But more about the different set ups we did in the few hours that we worked together. This wouldn't of happen a few years ago with the lack of the social network. I would of had to go into the agency and pick out comp cards. And then make countless phone calls to set up the shoot. But with the help of Facebook this happen and I wasn't sad that it didn't.
