The Story Behind the Picture: Le Blorr at the Delano

Last month I did a feature on Le Blorr for my column over at Skope. I really wanted to do a legit shoot for the main photo of the article and figured since they were playing at the Florida Room in the Delano Hotel, I could possibly swing the chance to shoot in a hotel room. I was able to work it out and arranged for a 4 hour window to use the room.

A few of the final arrangements weren't confirmed till the day before, but I went to bed that night thinking I had gotten everything set and we would be good to go. I thought should have plenty of time with the goal of a few different shots. Well, sometimes things don't go as planned.

So to start the day, one model cancels that morning and my window of time gets cut back an hour. Luckily, the stylist for the shoot, Tiffany Azmouz, was a trooper and was able to step in and model for me. No problem, I was prepared for the shoot and didn't necessarily need that long to get the shot. Next, the band, who had traveled down that day from Melbourne, FL (a few hours away), got caught up and doesn't make it till I have an hour left to be completely out of the hotel room.

My original goal was the main group shot and also do some individual ones of the guys. With out much time I had to focus on the group shot. So the lights are already set up, I talk things over with the guys of Le Blorr, and I've got 20 minutes to shoot. Sometimes you gotta just make it happen. We got the shot and I was stoked with the result. Thanks to Chantelle Tarride for make up.

Later that night the band played at the Florida Room. The place was filled with entrepenuers from a conference being held in Miami and they were in for a rude awakening. One minute the DJ was spinning and the next Le Blorr plugged in took over. Check out the article for my interview with the band.
