CLIENT SPOTLIGHT - Author Derrick Durrell Dixon
I recently had the pleasure of photographing Derrick Durrell Dixon. Derrick is a first time author and needed a cover photo for his upcoming book "Sit Your Dumb Ass Down". As a flight attendant, Derrick has experienced hilarious scenarios with the passengers while flying the friendly skies. When he shared his stories with friends and family, everyone told him that he should write a book... so he did! :-)
This was a fun "anything goes" type of shoot. Derrick didn't have a specific cover theme in mind when he came for his session. All he knew was that he wanted it to be fun, silly, and different... a good representation of what people would be experiencing when they read his book. So, I took it from there! We had a lot of fun going through different ideas from headshot worthy to looney bin worthy. And, after viewing his proofs, Derrick landed on a photo he loved. The photo made the cover or his book and the book has already hit the shelves of Amazon.com.
Here are a few photos from his shoot:
To see the photo that made the cover, check out Derrick's book for sale at Amazon.com for only $10!
Take a voyeuristic view into the world of the airline industry through the eyes of one of the most memorable personalities you will ever meet. Derrick Dixon takes you through the life of a flight attendant with his hilarious daily true stories. After reading this extremely comical novel you will stand up and cheer until he tells you to Sit Your Dumb Ass Down!
