This shoot was 100% refreshing for me. Because I know little to nothing about dancing or how to direct a dancer, Jake and I took a collaborative approach. He danced. I shot. We’d go for minutes at a time where we were both so wrapped up in our own art that neither of us spoke. We’d come back together, I’d show him what I was getting, and we’d bounce ideas off each other. It was such a contrast from the I’ll-tell-you-everything-I-want approach I usually have to take, and I left feeling so rejuvenated.
And the view doesn’t suck either.
