A very talented hair stylist whom I have the pleasure to work with, Mr. DaRico Jackson, asked if I could help out last minute for a test shoot as we wrapped on our “Unwrapped Bollywood” Editorial. Only thing was, the shoot was happening the following morning at 8AM and we were just wrapping at 8PM – and I was beat. All gravy tho, for DaRico, I’m always game. Turns out, the shoot was for female boxing sensation, Yolanda Ezell, aka “Ms. Knockout”. She’s trained by Mr. Mayweather himself…uncle, not pops. A former Ford Model turned boxer. Sexy & tough. The shoot was a family affair, with her cousin & brother both loungin’ on set. Good people to say the least. After messing with my strobes for a couple test shots, I settled on a small, warm softbox, just above the camera aiming down – and by down, I mean way down…she’s a tall woman. And damn successful too. Thanks for always makin’ it a good situation DaRico, until we meet again my brotha…
