So I’ve decided to start blogging about some of the celebrities I’ve had the opportunity to photograph over the last several years. I won’t be writing about anything negative, only about people I’ve met who I think are decent people despite their celebrity.
I recently had the pleasure of photographing Bucky Covington of American Idol fame. This was a really fun shoot and I can’t disclose any of the details yet, but I can show just one of the images that is a set-up shot before the “real shooting” began.
Living in Nashville has it’s perks as a photographer. I enjoy getting to meet a wide variety of people from all walks of life. I don’t write about all of them, only the occasional few who strike me as slightly different… in a good way. I chose to post this image because you can see it in his eyes – life. Bucky is a genuine cut-up and is just full of life; there’s no other way to put it.
Although I’m not a fan of country music… I do like people who treat others with dignity and respect, something I don’t come across every day in dealing with people who live in the spotlight. I’ve met more than a few celebrities along the way around-whom-the-world-revolves, or so they think. Pleasure to meet you, Mr. Covington; glad to find you’re not one of those people.
More info and photos on the shoot posted here.
