Coming in hot!

August 12, 2021

I couldn’t be more happy and honored to be able to bring together so many creative and talented people to pull off this photo shoot!
I had an inspiration for a 1960s photo that I saw online that I wanted to re-create, but I wanted to create it with my own twist, my own style,
so I contacted my friend Chris Lynch who is an amazing pilot, and I told him about my idea and he immediately suggested his good friend Dave Sullivan, Dave has a yellow 1940s Stearman biplane which was exactly what I was looking for!
When I contacted Dave about my idea it only took him 30 seconds and he was on board!! We found a perfect private grass strip runway for the location in Wentworth NH
Now I needed to find myself a model who had NO fear of airplanes, and also someone who was Comfortable posing nude.
When I spoke to Gabby Decologero, it took her 5 seconds to say yes!! So then I wanted to put my own creativity on it so I contacted an amazing dress designer from North Carolina Alice Andrew designs! She sent me the most amazing and beautiful red parachute dress specifically for this photo shoot!
Then i needed some KILLER videography to cover this production and contacted my good friend videographer Cory Wires, took him some ”convincing” but he was SO THRILLED! And to add just one more crazy element to this whole production I thought it would be a good idea to bring in my good friend and FPV drone pilot Dan Wahll to get some absolutely sick video footage that’s never been done before!
And none of this could have been done without the assistance from my amazing and talented Brienne Marie Burbank
Thank you again to all of you for coming together and believing in my vision and art!
We will be sharing more video and content shortly!!! You don’t want to miss it
