One of the greatest things about living this lifestyle is that I never know what is going to happen next. Today Adam Nash, a world famous photographer and great friend, stopped by and asked me to do a quick shoot for a top secret commercial client. I can only guess who that client may be.
Adam splits his time between guiding in Alaska and shooting commercial and portraiture photography all over the world. When he asked me to be his guinea pig I jumped at the opportunity to go down in Adam Nash photographic history.
My primary in front of camera experience is in motion pictures, but it was easy enough to act the role of Marlboro man, Marlon Brando, and Sterling Hayden all wrapped up in one.
One of the first things I learned working in the film industry is that a great director can pull anything out of a decent actor.
It was cold as hell out but Adam had me thinking it was summer in Hawaii.
Yep I said it before and I will say it again, I love this life and every day it gets better.
Maybe I can teach Serena to make me look like Brad Pitt on film and I can retire and sail the seven seas.
It was loads of fun but I can assure you I wont be quitting my day job anytime soon, like I have one.
Oddly enough for all the years I worked in Hollywood and the hundreds of films I appeared in, Chloe had a cameo in a Subaru comercial and was far more famous than I had ever been. Dogs have all the luck:)

Even though fixed in time, a photograph evokes as much feeling as that which comes from music or dance. Whatever the mode – from the snapshot to the decisive moment to multi-media montage – the intent and purpose of photography is to render in visual terms feelings and experiences that often elude the ability of words to describe. In any case, the eyes have it, and the imagination will always soar farther than was expected. – Ralph Gibson
