Thank you, Mark Zuckerberg. I don’t care how weird you are- Facebook has made my life a whole lot easier.
On Friday night I posted a last-minute appeal to NYC dancers for a weekend shoot in upstate New York. I was afraid the foliage would be gone by the time I returned from Atlanta, so I hoped someone would be available on such short notice.
I received three emails within twenty minutes, and more followed on Saturday. Sunday morning, Cierra Cotton and Raymond L. Bennett grabbed a bus from Manhattan; two hours later we met in New Paltz, NY. They had both studied at the Alvin Ailey School, and their training definitely made me look good.
Now what? My publishers at Workman Publishing have set a deadline of late February to deliver all the Dancers Among Us photos for the book. Where should I go next? What regions have I neglected? Who wants to pose for me? I have some ideas, but I’d love to hear from you. Email me at email@example.com, post on my Facebook fan page, tweet me @jordanmatter, visit me on Vimeo, or write a blog… Anything, as long as you don’t send me a request to join Linkedin!
Time flies when you’re having fun! Before we know it February will be upon us. Speak now or forever hold your peace (at least until I start work on the follow-up book).

I heard this from everyone, so I asked Barry Kerollis to meet me there at the busiest time of the day. Once again, I arrived in a rush with no scenario in mind. We had 20 minutes. I had spent five hours on two shots in the morning, so I was very behind schedule and trying to make up for lost time.
