CEO Talk 102

My long awaited Photoshoot, oh how I love bringing life to the pages of Melanin Power Magazine ( 

As I prepared myself physically and mentally for this day, I started with my B12, collagen and Protein Drink to give myself the energy that I needed to get through the day. My make-up is always done by me as I’m not yet comfortable with someone else’s face that close, I figure they’re not close-ups so I could pull this off and (Melanin Power Magazine #melaninpowerunleashed is not yet fully funded so the more I can do myself the better the Magazine Profits.

Today I am here in the sunshine state of Florida, with Photographer Andrew Bowen. Photographers love days like this when their Lens catches the Golden Hour and makes that connection. On this day I decided to catch the rays of sunshine and decided to start shooting about midday. I must say that I’m not a Model never claimed to be and my hat goes off to those professional models that stand in the sunlight all day to get that perfect shot. It was a bit challenging but I got it done. I had so much fun and it’s always helpful when you’re working with a Photographer that’s determine to get the best of you. I had quite a number of pieces to shoot and my Venue was very important. My friend offered up her very distinct front and back yard which was a perfect match for the day’s Shoot. The streets are always an option as you see and the backdrop for walking is always perfect. 

It was a long day, I started at 1:30pm and ended at about 6pm. Now the fun part of the job begins, the task of going through over 500 photos knowing that your editor will not use half of them, selecting the ones that is Captivating to the World is vigorous. So here we are. I hope you enjoy these shots as much as I did, so much more to come. Stay tuned!
