Christina Grimmie

Christina Grimmie you tube sensation
So even I know it’s a big deal….I feel so lucky to have landed this awesome gig…shooting the first cover of you tube sensation Christina Grimmie, was more nerve wrecking than I admitted to myself, or to anyone else… (why am I admitting it now then?) I admit, of course I googled her, and I am at least one click of her 17,000,000 views, yes, that is seventeen, m-i-l-l-i-o-n you tube views ( and counting….!) So I can see why Christina is excited about her new album, and you can imagine why I am  A LITTLE EXCITED ABOUT IT TOO!!!!! ( if I may ride on her army jacket coat tails..) so- I will say, that Christina was as sweet as can be, as professional as expected and everyone on set had a great time. So here are some photos from that day, that didn’t make the cover, but are so Christina Grimmie too! And of course, don’t forget to buy her new album on itunes – “FIND ME”  it’s coming out right now!!!!!!!!!!! ( and on a personal note- thank you Max for trusting me with such a grown up job!)

Rachel Campbell - Oh my god you are so inspiring. I’m a photographer myself, but in the presence of these photos I dare not call myself that. I don’t know exactly the “protocol” of photography businesses these days, but if there is any opportunity for me to shadow you for a while, let me know. Your stuff is the best I have ever seen.
