What a great summer it has been. I wish I could have been more proactive in my writing but that has been quite the challenge with all the assignments and television shows I’ve been doing this year. I will do my best to follow this up with all the goings on since my last entry. But just to hold you over until I can really sit down and write the pages I really want to get to, this will have to do for now. 🙂

The season started with an amazing opportunity and experience. I was asked to be on Germany’s Next Top Model with Heidi Klum.

It all started in the spring when I was contacted by Dorland and Gray in Berlin (this was the ad agency for the assignment) to shoot a campaign and direct an international Mexx campaign (this is Cover Girl for eastern europe). I was elated to find out it would be for a winner of a competition on Germany’s Next Top Model. One that I would help choose as I sat on the jury panel.

Here is a video clip of the jury panel

So, I was part of the television show as well. It lasted ten days and took place in Honolulu, Hawaii. When we weren’t sitting poolside having drinks, or out to dinner with a couple dozen people we were all hard at work! Whether we were shooting on the set of LOST or Waikiki beach it was tough work, but some poor photographer / director had to do it 😉
