Get the Job Done: Anne is Back!


A very cool thing happened to me this morning. I got a message from a very talented model asking me if we could get together to take more photos of her to help build our portfolios. Even though she says she's not a model and she only likes to pretend to be after a glass of wine to tame her shyness, I completely disagree! Anne Filler takes some amazing shots, and having her ask me to shoot her is a great honor.


I met Anne last year during one of my first digital photography classes at the Denver Darkroom with instructor Efrain Cruz, who is now director of Illuminate Photography Workshops. Efrain always ended his classes with an opportunity to shoot a model in studio, and Anne was one of ladies who came up from Colorado Springs to model for us. I will always remember this particular shoot because it was the first time when I really felt brave enough to pose the model myself. Anne was open for pretty much anything, and I had an idea of standing up on a ladder and shooting her from below.


"Look up at me as if you are sultry siren and you are coming to get me!" I said. Yeah, yeah, go ahead and laugh because even I can admit that was extremely cheesy. But look at this amazing shot! It's one of my favorites and is one of the most popular shots on my website. Anne is a dear, and I can't wait to shoot with her again. What's her big idea: "an edgier lingerie shoot with some paint poured all over me!" Bet you wish you could be my assistant for that shoot, don'tcha?!
