In all my years of being a Protographer I have come to realize there are many Stories to be told about my Photos. In doing so, I have heard many Stories of Models, I have Shot! Here is one my embarrassing ones:

During one of my Model Shoots while I lived in North Scituate, RI, I lost my Car Keys! My Landlord as it were was a Law Enforcement Detective; he also was my Landlord! Additionally I had lost my Key to my Apt. How embarrassing was this! I called my Landlord and he came to pick us up in a Squad Car; we wound up eating Pizza in the back of the Cruiser because he was on-the-job! He took me back to my Apt.; I could not look for my keys because it was very dark!

After Daybreak I went to back to the site where we Shot, and sure enough, my Keys were in the exact spot where I had left them!!! Good thing nobody had spotted them! Very Amusing! Who would have thought that could have happened to me! Of all people, a Professional Photographer! A foolish Lesson to be learned! :)
