A lovely little bit of #kindness for your morning: this gentleman pops over from across the floor to the elderly woman standing confused on the treadmill, politely smiles and says “anything I can do to help?” and proceeds to set her up to start walking. He didn’t have to notice her or come over to help, but he did, just to be kind. #awesome (at City Sports Clubs Stonestown Mall)

Cool post from @EmilyShur about what it’s like shooting celebrities “photo booth” style at award shows. Awesome portrait too.
Helen Mirren backstage at the SAG Awards on January 18, 2014.
These types of “photo booth” shoots at awards shows are interesting. Basically we set up a backdrop and a full studio lighting set up in a little cubicle designated for us, side by side other photographers and videographers doing exactly the same thing. The actors and celebrities get shuffled around from spot to spot, and I would get about 1-2 minutes with each person. You can hear lots of yelling going on around you, and the publicists are mainly concerned with getting their clients to as many different press outlets as possible. If you have any interest in the inner workings of Hollywood and the entertainment industry (which I do), the whole thing is pretty fascinating (and crazy).
All in all, I probably got about 10 frames total of each celebrity before they were rushed off to the next one. Helen Mirren and yesterday’s Lupita Nyong’o were so easy to photograph and so poised even in that chaotic environment. Hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to photograph both of them again under more “normal” circumstances.
