Tweets about the project were on in full force with the tag #geekgoddesses. Response has been overwhelmingly positive. We've got a few more models lined up for the project including the hilarious and georgeous youtube vloggers GraceNMichelle. I'm almost out-of-my-mind excited about this prospect.
We got a mention on supercreative after pitching the idea to shoot three of the Geek Goddesses shoots as part of their supercreativeten project in Miami this summer. I'm not holding my breath about this one since our shoot pitches aren't Miami-centric. BUT this idea has gotten me really psyched about road-tripping down south for a few shoots.
The video game shot was the first idea that I had for Geek Goddesses. I was playing Rainbow Six Vegas (one of those really great shooting/killing games). Some guests were coming over for dinner and I rushed to hide the headset that you use to talk to other players because it was so embarrassingly dorky. My thought was that if girls played these games, I wouldn't have to be embarrassed. Thus the idea that girls DO play them when no one is looking. Can you imagine such a world?
Geek Goddesses is a new series that I'm shooting. And I'm blogging and tweeting all the behind-the-scenes stuff -- concepts, sketches (stick figures included).
