Emma gave me a call with the idea of shooting in a bathroom. I believe she was looking for a ‘graffiti filled stye’ of a bathroom. My mind immediately started racing towards some of Denver’s prominent dive bars and wild underground locales. While we didn’t exactly find a ‘stye,’ we certainly got some awesome graffiti when we went and shot at the Larimer Lounge.
They were sweet enough to allow us in before they opened and gave us a few hours to toy around in the building. How fun! I love that bar, so it was particularly fun to imagine how to light it and make it come alive in a different way than I’m used to. Emma and I started our shoot in the women’s bathroom upstairs and moved out towards the back patio. We had a blast trying to figure out new and interesting ways to sit on and stand around a toilet. (You can read about the lighting if you click the next box down).
I was pretty exhausted the day of shooting, but Emma’s professionalism and wonderful attitude brought us both up and created an overall amazing experience. When I went home to flip through the photos, there really wasn’t a bad one out of all of them. She did such an incredible job. Her singing voice can illuminate any room, and her attitude reflects that beautifully. It was an honor to work with someone so talented.
