Aside from being able to go out into a snow storm and shoot with 13th Witness and friends, I had some other good opportunities pop up while on my recent trip to the Big Apple. One of which was the opportunity to shoot photos with one of the most popular girls on the web right now, Jen Selter. She contacted me months ago, probably back in September, I would say. At that time she had around 500k in followers on Instagram. This caught my eye because I wasn’t aware of who she was. Maybe an up and coming pop singer I hadn’t heard of yet? Maybe an actress? But as I started to look through her profile it appeared fitness was her thing. And let’s be honest, it showed. Not too often do you see a girl like Jen with a body like that. She had mentioned that she liked my work and wanted to shoot. Through our various e-mail exchanges she seemed cool and agreed we should shoot. Now I’d visited N.Y. for Halloween, and because of my schedule, I didn’t have a chance to link up with her. Well, between then and now, she increased from 500k to 2 million followers on instagram alone, started doing various TV shows and interviews regarding her work out regime to obtain such a figure. In my mind, I had missed my window of opportunity, and she would be onto bigger and better things. Still, I reached out again stating I would be in N.Y.and that if she wanted to shoot still I would be around. To my surprise. she was still with it. We linked up in SoHo for our day to shoot. Much like many of you out there, I love the photos of her in the streets doing stretches and work outs. Maybe it’s the contrast of action and setting, or maybe it’s the bright colored yoga pants that make it interesting. I would say it’s a combo of both. So Jen and I set out around the area of my hotel to shoot her from my perspective. I must say it was fun. The energetic 20 year old was all over the place with a smile on her face despite the cold weather. I must say being 33 and growing up in an era before social media, I liked the fact of how someone as young as Jen seems to have a good head on her shoulders despite her massive following and upcoming success. It gives me hope for the future, and makes me want to say thank you Jen for having the opportunity to shoot with you. So enjoy some flicks of Jen and have a great monday!
