Foot Traffic

  • Post-race thoughts on Fort4Fitness
    The air was cool and a chill traveled up my bare legs as I took that step out the door. A pit was in my stomach, churning. I sauntered to the starting point, giving my GPS watch time to find a satellite.

No Blood, Please

Shooter's Comments:

While setting up a video shoot of Renee Gabet at the Annie Oakley Perfumery in Ligonier, I noticed Renee struggling to open a metal vial with a pair of scissors. So, I warned her that we didn't really want blood in the video. She was laughing until she realized she had cut open both thumbs and was bleeding onto the counter. After a quick cleanup and and pair of bandages from her assistant, we finished the video, but you can still see a bit of blood on the tip of her right thumb.
