is better than a list...
Put it this way: it would not be right for me to post my laundry list of likes and dislikes and then expect you to drop your guard and be your truest self in front of my camera in return.
I will be asking you to express what many would consider personal feelings about you and the person you love. You probably would not normally share to the fullest extent with a stranger, so in short, YES, we should be friends and we should definitely get to know each other a little better before we begin shooting. Is it a requirement? Of course not, but at the very least, it will help us make the very most of our time together.
How many of your long-term friendships were established with a generic list? Call me old fashioned, but I really do think face time is the best way to get to know someone, so if you live in Los Angeles, I propose we meet to at least see if we’re a fit! We can go for coffee, have a glass of wine, go for a hike – whatever you guys are up for, I’ll be there! If we hit it off, then we can do more fun activities together! Speaking from experience, I can promise that all of the non-photo related facts, likes and dislikes about me will be shared in time. 🙂
I look forward to getting to know you both!
