Thanks for reaching out jon-paul.
This kind of shoot is real fun, but it really is like, um, the stylist's shot. She creates the set, the prop, the details, and I just kind of show up and set up the camera. It's alot like commissioning artwork: I really get the credit simply for hiring the right people and coming up with the idea. Don't get me wrong tho...I really enjoy making photographs this way, no question. It's just a different experience.
