When you realize you want to take pictures for the rest of your life, you figure out pretty quickly that odd hours are just part of the gig. Rolling out of bed two hours before the sun comes up has not yet stopped being confusing (why am I up at 5 am? Go back to sleep. Wait. I think I have something important to do. Oh yeah, my job), and then totally exhilarating – because you suddenly remember those first perfect golden rays will be waiting for you at 7.
Despite a bit of a late start which led to most of the Distraction art staff sitting on a dark Wynwood street with our laptops open for a solid and worrisome 40 minutes, our Pontiac Trans Am rolling on set just after sunrise began one of our best cover shoots to date.
We filmed and photographed and made friends with a neighborhood cat – and Claire did a lot of leaning and lying and becoming one with the car until we got our shot.
…And then we fell asleep in our 11 am classes, because priorities.
