I'm on my knees, Bebe. Literally, I'm typing on my knees.
I'm sure I'm not the first man to fall before you, and I don't even know you, yet I'm certain I want to photograph you for my book. Hopefully you'll read this appeal and be intrigued.
I'm a NYC photographer, and I've been shooting dancers in everyday situations for over two years. The project is titled, "Dancers Among Us". It has been viewed millions of times on my website, and featured in blogs, newspapers, magazines and television segments around the world. I just finalized a contract with Workman Publishing for a Spring 2013 national book release. I'm traveling around the country photographing dancers for the book.
Recently someone asked me who I still want to photograph, and your name immediately came to mind. I understand you were a knockout host at the The Bessie Awards this year, so you may enjoy this "Dancers Among Us" photo of Jennifer Jones from last year's ceremony.
I'm sure you're a fantastic subject to photograph. I'm ready to hop on a plane and meet you anywhere. The folks at Workman have given me until March to finish shooting, so I'm yours anytime between now and then. Just say the word.
It's not a stretch to imagine you in this book. After all, this image of you in "Chicago"-

Feel free to contact me anytime. Here's my private email address. Please don't give it to anyone. I just use it for family, friends and celebrity crushes-
See you soon!
