Downtown Night of Style

Dallas Downtown Night of Style
7/16 – Sometimes all you can do is say yes

Last Thursday was my first extra day off in a couple of months. I had made a few plans to hang out with some different people and just have a good day. It started with a trip to Esoterica Salons where Ale (@alehairninja) gave me a free style and trim when I helped out on a commercial he was DP’ing for Windup Films. The hair cut went great and I got some really good tips and tricks for dealing with my curly tresses. Afterwards, Ale invited me along to help him do behind-the-scenes for a fashion show in Dallas that his salon was doing hair and makeup for. I did have other plans for the day, but I quickly explained to my friends that I couldn’t miss out on an opportunity like this and suddenly I’m helping set up for a fashion show! Looking back on this night it’s still crazy how it all spun out and unfolded. I’m so grateful for this experience though and I’m pretty pleased with adding my first Director of Photography credit to my resume. It was mostly BTS with a GoPro 3 but we also shot with a Canon for all of the interviews.

It really was a whole different realm for me, but I really enjoyed it and met some really amazing people. Looking forward to the next random adventure!
