Alex Noiret & Scott Vance by Skye Parrott for The Standard
MORE PHOTOS! These were shot by my friend and wonderful photographer Skye Parrott for The Standard Hotel. How wonderful. This was our first shoot together (Scott and I), and I remember that we were so, so nervous. And now, we get asked to shoot together all of the time. It’s awesome! I also posted a few more photos that have been released from the series. [side note- here’s a little fun fact: In modeling, 90% of the time the model has to hunt down her photos. There are no notifications as to when projects or photos are released (unless you have a tight leash on whoever shot it). For example, a package came in the mail for me last night and it was my Vogue L’Uomo magazine that I had to order off of Ebay so that I could see my own photos. Ha!]
Yesterday was a pretty great day of shooting, yummy food, time to smell the flowers, and banana muffins. OK- maybe there was one not-so-great thing and that was my last-minute cramming of homework. It’s OK though, I feel like that comes with the territory of being a student.
Scott (my angel boyfriend who’s also in an awesome band) and I did something that we’d never done before- a photo shoot! Together! Not only that, but with one of my most favorite photographers, Skye Parrott (who is also the founder of Dossier, a beautiful magazine encompassing all that is creative). I’ve shot with Skye a couple of times now- first time being when I was 14. That was a long time ago, and so many wonderful changes have happened since then. Skye has not changed though- she is one of the sweetest, most genuine ladies I have ever come across.
The shoot was held with Skye Parrott at The Standard Hotel in Hollywood, for a secret project. Shooting with Scott was a fun new experience for me. It was a little bit tricky because Scott is someone that I am completely comfortable with. I don’t feel like a ‘model’ per se when I am with him. I feel like my true, unaltered self. Which is wonderful, except for shooting fashion is not exactly entirely “comfortable”. What I mean by that, is as a model, I must always be aware of where the camera is, how the light is hitting my face, how my body positioning looks, and always thinking of what to do next. Anyhow, we had a great time and shooting with Skye again was wonderful.
On our way home, we quickly pulled over because I saw this beautiful pink tree in bloom (after researching, they are apparently called “trumpet trees”). Sometimes cameras simply do not capture the full charm of beautiful things. So, I took a selfie and we were off.
