I worked with Ciara Price for the first time back on June 25th of 2009… I will never forget that shoot for a few reasons… The first reason was… Ciara was a natural in front of the camera… The camera loved her!! I knew that day she was special and so easy to work with… I honestly don’t think she even knew how beautiful she was and how she made the shoot seem so effortless. I think out of each 100 images I took of her that day… I probably had to only delete 5 of them… The second reason why I will never forget the shoot was because I left my cell phone home that day by mistake…. Not that at that time it was a big deal but little did we know what sad turn of events happened that day… When we got back from the shoot… Ciara was grabbing her stuff and packing up to go back home.. I checked my cell phone messages as she did so… I noticed at least 15 phone calls and texts.. I was like “Wow!! I feel popular today”!!… As I checked the first message.. It was my girlfriend saying how sorry she was for me about Michael Jackson Dying.. Then the next message… Another friend telling me they hoped I was ok.. I turned to Ciara and said….”Oh my God!! I think Michael Jackson died today!!” I quickly turned on the tv and to my horror… They were showing footage of putting michael in a ambulance covered in a sheet!! My jaw dropped and my heart sank!! I was and still am a huge MICHAEL JACKSON fan….. Ciara knew I was sad and gave me a hug telling me she was sorry… It was such a weird feeling… Going from feeling so awesome and happy about the shoot we just did to feeling so sad in a split second… So..Unfortunately … I will never forget that shoot with her as it’s the day we lost the KING OF POP but also the birth of a future Playmate as I knew she had something special and would later call her on doing a test shoot for Playboy 2 years later.
Later on in 2009… I was shooting and submitting to a popular magazine/zine/web site called Barstool Sports…. It’s very popular here in Boston… The paper/web site talks alot about sports/women and odds and ends of interest.. I knew Ciara had a great look and submitted her to Barstool… They loved her and that was the first publication Ciara was in..
It was back in mid 2010 when I suggested to Ciara she should do Playboy.. She pretty much laughed it off..
Before Ciara left Maine and moved out to LA to pursue her dreams… We did one last shoot together… The shoot was for Clothing Designer Julie Reppucci….. Julie contacted me and asked me if I knew of any models that would be great for her latest clothing line which included swimsuits.. I instantly though Ciara was perfect.. With her looks and body… I knew Julie would like her… That is an understatement!! Julie Loved her!! Below you will see one of the outfits Ciara modeled for julie’s line….. If you would like to contact Julie about her designs.. You can find her right here on JULIES FACEBOOK PAGE.
