Rex Lee for Vanity Fair © Emily Shur
Tuesday marked the one year anniversary of My Four Eyed Fantasy! Yay me. This blog has been fun, satisfying, and fulfilling, not to mention a constant reminder of how powerful the internet is.
Here are some other tidbits from this week so far. Monday night I got to speak to an entertainment photography class at Art Center College of Design taught by Micahel Kochman, Entertainment Weekly‘s west coast photo editor. Michael and I have worked together on many shoots over the years, since before I actually lived here in LA. I always have a great time talking to his classes at Art Center, and it’s flattering to be asked to come in. Thanks Michael! Yesterday I had an out of town shoot with Olympian Natalie Coughlin. Natalie has won a total of 11 medals in Athens in 2004 and Beijing in 2008. Damn. Today, I flipped through the March issue of Vanity Fair at a 7 Eleven (I really needed a Diet Dr. Pepper) and saw my photo of Rex Lee, aka Lloyd from Entourage. Rex was really fun to shoot – very animated, very giving. Soon I will have more images of Rex to show. Above is one of the more subdued images from the shoot, but quite dapper nonetheless.
