My good friend Hiram Chee asked me to help with a fabric store shoot at Hart’s Fabrics in Santa Cruz. He was doing a trade with the store and a few models and got free access to the whole store after hours. Actually, he wanted me to shoot with him and another photographer, but I told him he would certainly need an assistant for what he wanted to accomplish. Sure enough, I was more than busy enough just setting up lights and helping coordinate things. There were a couple HMUA and stylists, who I am pretty sure were employees or friends of one of the employees. The other photographer setup a seamless and shot quite a few of the employees in outfits they had created. It was an eclectic mix of fabric and colors!

Truly, Hart’s Fabrics is an amazing store and a prop stylist’s heaven.

So Hiram had his daughter Izzy setup for a shot and made me shoot ☺ I had setup the lighting and so it was a great opportunity, which I reluctantly received. I am funny about being a second cook in the kitchen, as it were. Since I had never seen the store, except in a few iphone pics I was still taking it all in and thinking how I would setup shots. On this shots I did modify a few things with the stylists, moved the lighting a bit and picked my own point of view, so I don’t feel so bad working someone else’s setup. Thank you Hiram!

All in all, everyone realized we need to shoot again. I am dreaming of my own setups for next time. Following are a few glimpses of the store with Genevieve giving me a spirited tour ☺
