2019 June 12 Journal
My shoot with Elizabeth went absolutely wonderfully yesterday. I shot in a few spots that I’ve never shot before in the studio. I shot in ways that are quintessentially me. Her images are absolutely breathtaking. I am so proud of my work yesterday.
And then I had the interview with Adam. We talked for almost 4 hours. Recorded a ton of content. I feel like I need some new skills to help me edit these big long form pieces down. It’s reminding me of the challenge of editing the SHE SLC piece. I need an efficient way to sort through big, long pieces of long form media and organize it into something meaningful.
Devin Townsend’s manager asked about using photos for a big 5 page spread in Premier Guitar magazine. I was totally happy to let Devin’s promoter use them for the Australian tour posters, but the Guitar magazine thing feels different. There are industry standard rates for that kind of thing.
I am caught between feeling like I’m happy to do anything I can to help one of my favorite artists, and, feeling taken advantage of. Not sure how to answer this one.
