The Good Stuff.
I don’t usually talk about my work on this blog. Because I work in public relations, there are a lot of preparation that goes into campaigns and projects that we work on that I can’t talk about, and even when there is something I can talk about, I have been wary about making this blog too job-focused.
But every once in awhile, there something really cool happening that I must share.
For the past couple of months, I’ve been working with our Nikon team on a new campaign called Look Good In Pictures with Carson Kressley. It’s a how-to webisode series about how to look great in photos by knowing how to smile, pose and dress your best. Obviously, it stars Carson Kressley (the guy from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and Lifetime’s How To Look Good Naked) and it’s actually really fun. I mean, Carson is hilarious, so how could it not be?
Anyway, on Wednesday, we filmed a couple of episodes of the series in New York City. The first was at the Times Square Visitor Center where regular people off the street could be photographed by a professional photographer and have their image critique in person by Carson. There were a lot of people there considering how cold it was. And I should know! For awhile I stood outside chatting with people in line, explaining to them what was going to happen, and also encouraging people off the street to check it out. Boy was it cold out!
Later that night, I went down to the Cutting Room (which is owned by Chris Noth of Sex and the City fame, but sadly he wasn’t there) to help with another webisode. We had some media coming down, including a couple of bloggers, so I was on hand to greet people and talk to them about the show. It was so much fun to see Carson in action. He is a crazy fun guy, and everyone had a great time.
Finally, when all was said and done and it was “a wrap,” Carson stayed around for awhile longer and took pictures and chatted with people.
He also told me that I had great skin. Which I think means “You have great make-up.” It was funny though because about an hour earlier this girl asked me what moisturizer I use because I was “glowing.” Her words, not mine. Considering I’m as far from pregnant as you can get, all I can think of was that it must have been the lighting in the bar.
I think the picture with Carson came out well… I have that whole double chin thing going on but that’s just because I need to lose a little weight. Not much you can do about that.
Good time, good times.
