15 minutes with Billy Crystal


I had about 15 minutes to get some nice portraits of Billy Crystal recently. Many of the celebrity portraits I am assigned allow for 20 minutes or less with the subject. With Billy Crystal, this included introducing myself, setting up some lights, moving some furniture around ,figuring out where in the office to shoot the photos, and of course trying to build some rapport. It's tough to do with no budget on the shoot for an assistant. He was friendly, but a little bit serious too. Thankfully pros like Mr Crystal definitely know all about being in front of the camera and that helps my job to go easier. After photos in three different setups, Billy looked at me , smiled , and said," You must having something good by now" and just like that, the end of my photo shoot with Billy Crystal had arrived.
