I met Scarlaa several years ago when she came to a play that I was in. She came with her best friend, who’s big brother was in the play too. I played one of Nicola Tesla’s assistants who steals time travelers beer and passes it out to the audience. Since this is not a blog about acting, you can guess how well my performing career went over.
The following year we got into the famous Clermont Hotel in Atlanta. It was our first shoot together, and we were getting to know each other as we shot. We soon found out we both thought the famously sleazy old place was awesome. We got a lot of great shots. Below is two of them.
As Rick said in Casablanca, “I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” Since that evening at the Clermont I have shot thousands of pictures of her. She’s become a great friend, and is now engaged to another friend of mine.
