Twitter-Interactive: Meet The Team

UPDATE: Thanks to all who joined us. We’ll be updating the blog 2-20-09 with thoughts from today.

Our Twitter-Interactive shoot is tomorrow. I’m so excited that if I was a cheerleader I’d be doing spirit fingers. Ok, bad mental image, sorry.

We’re just a few hours from the big project and a whole lot of fun. I’d like to invite you to join us, here’s what were doing and how we’re doing it.

We’re shooting fashion all day. We’re using Profoto Pro-8 Air packs with the Air Remote. We’ll be in a giant 7,000 square foot studio. We’re doing all of this live via Twitter.

Beginning at 7:00am Arizona Time (8:00am PST) we’ll be sending updates to all of my twitter followers. We’ll be giving updates about what we’re doing, the setup, technical details, the styling, the models, etc. We’re going to be as transparent as possible.

The communication isn’t one way, what fun would that be? We are asking you to ask us questions along the way. Want to know how we’re doing something? Ask us. Why are we using that light modifier? Just ask. What makeup are we using? Glad you asked. What’s our workflow? Good question!

We’ll be tagging all of our twitter updates with #snapshoot so it’s easy for you to look them up down the road or even grab an RSS feed for easy viewing.

You can join in on all of this fun by simply following me on Twitter (it’s free). If you’re not sure what Twitter is take a look at this video.

Oh but wait, there’s more…

I’m going to be very busy shooting all day so I’ve asked a few people to help us out. Let me introduce the team and tell you what they’ll be doing.

MsHerr_webshot_2008.05.jpg

Heather Lynne Herr @MsHerr will be manning the keyboard all day. She’s a terrific writer, reporter, social media fanatic, and all around cool person. She’ll be forwarding questions to me and typing answers from me. She’ll be talking to the other artists in the studio and giving their updates as well. She’ll be our voice.

Danno @dannophotos will be shooting behind-the-scenes photos all day long. He’ll be feeding the photos to Heather who will post them to Flickr or Twitpic for all to see. Of course as soon as a new photo is live we’ll tweet the info. Need a closer look at something? Just ask and we’ll send Danno over to grab a close up. And, yeah, he’s so cool he only needs one name.

Jeff-hs.jpg< Jeff Caroli @speedman19 will be shooting video of everything we do – all day. In fact he’s been shooting video of all the preparation for a few days now.

All of this video footage is going to be edited and posted on YouTube, StudioLighting.net and other sites. We’ll be able to give you more in-depth explanations about what we’re doing in future videos. We plan to augment the videos with diagrams and animations just like many of our Digital Photography One on One videos. If you want to see something specific in the videos just let us know.

The Artists

Diane-hs.jpg

Diane Wallace @dianewallace is our Makeup Artist (MUA). Diane is the best half of SnapFactory. She’s an equally talented photographer but tomorrow she’ll be in her role as MUA all day. She’s been busy designing looks and matching colors and styles with the wardrobe Erin has pulled.

Because Diane and I work so closely together she’ll also be giving creative input on the entire shoot. I wouldn’t even think about shooting something on this scale without Diane on hand to help guide us. She’s a very talented artist and one job title just doesn’t do her justice.

Erin Markis is our Wardrobe Stylist. You’ve seen her in previous videos working with our models and she’ll continue that work tomorrow. She’s been working very hard to gather wardrobe from local designers and stores and has had a few challenges along the way. We’ll be covering this in some of the future videos. It’s been a journey!

Heather Blaine is our Hairstylist. She has some very impressive work and she’ll be working along side Diane and Erin all day to get the models prepped for their next set. This will be my first time working with Heather and I’m very excited about it.

Loft19_LogoSF.jpg

We’ll be shooting in 7,000 square feet of photographer heaven, otherwise known as Loft19. There are actually three studios in Loft19, we’ll be shooting in Studio One and Two. There is also a lobby, conference room, lounge area, waiting area, makeup tables, and coffee bar. This is one of the best studios in the US, so if you see something and want more info please ask about it.

Floyd Bannister is the owner of Loft19 and he’ll be assisting us all day with any equipment or studio needs. Loft19 has an amazing collection of gear and he’ll make sure we have everything we need throughout the day.

Our models are all coming from The Agency Arizona. Travis Given from The Agency AZ has been working with us for a couple of weeks to make sure we have the right models for the job. If you have any questions about rates, booking, or other model stuff we’ll pass it along to Travis.

Katie Masters, Madeleine Hall, Erika Shelton, and Carly Vollmert will be our models for this shoot. We’ve already posted a quick video of them at their fitting. If you missed it you can click here to take a look.

And finally, there’s me. I’m Mark Wallace @jmarkwallace. I’m a commercial, fashion, and fine art photographer. I’m also a photography instructor. We’ll have plenty of time to get to know each other tomorrow. I hope you join us!

    This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It is the old what goes around comes around routine. Did you acquired lots of links and I see lots of trackbacks??
