This was my first shoot with The Farm Dogs and their leader Bernie Taupin. It was for publicity & packaging. We did the shoot at Smash Box Studios in Culver City, CA. I was hired my the manager Michael Lippman and it was such a cool shoot with a bunch of cool musicians!
I remember shooting in Sky Box studio for the day. Did a couple simple ideas and had fun. The band was Bernie Taupin, Dennis Tufano, Jim Cregan and Robin Le Mesurier. Just a bunch of legends! Meeting Bernie for the first time was amazing. He was super nice and just the best. I ended up shooting him a couple my times after for different reasons.
I love meeting and working with icons! They have never let me down once. Bernie has written more great hit songs than I can remember and was so nice to me. Pure class.
