I’ve worked for my company, Emmis Communications, for a little over two years now, shortly after joining the team in 2011 I had the opportunity to be a part of a client project that has come to be one of the things I look forward to every year. The client is Hustler Hollywood and the project is there annual Valentines Gift Guide that is housed on 1057thepoint.com. Most people chuckle at me when I say it’s one of the things I look forward to the most every year because of the content of the project but little do they know, the photo shoot is much more than hanging around beautiful women all day. This shoot is a full production with multiple photo set ups, a video shoot, cramming about a 16 hour shoot into 8 hours, and then countless hours of editing. At the end of the day you walk away from this project with a sense of fulfillment that proceeds hanging out with models, no offense to past or present talent that has helped this feature be a success. Doing a production like this takes a full team effort to pull off and I couldn’t ask for a better team of professionals to work with.
Every year I learn more and more about photography and production, it has really became an educational experience. The photos I’ve included in the slide show are just a handful of images that stuck out to me, and honestly I could have spent more time selecting my choice picks but I really wanted to get this out there for people to see. If you’d like to see the actual feature please follow the link at http://www.1057thepoint.com/hustler. Adron Buske was lead photographer on the project and Joe Schoenwetter was our videographer for the day and the catalog really showcases their talents. I’m very proud to say I was part of this production and a big kudos to our models Kimberly Andret and Kara Friedman, they made our jobs easy as photographers that day. Enjoy my pics and please check out the Gift Guide at http://www.1057thepoint.com/hustler, and get your woman something that makes her feel sexy this Valentines Day!
