Mick Jagger 1987

Keep your eyes on the prize.

Mick was an hour late and I was nearing cardiac arrest at the anticipation of having the worlds greatest rock star enter my studio.  I was sweating through my shirt and couldn’t seem to catch a deep breath.  I set and reset the lights over and over again.  I sampled every item on the catering table.  When Mick finally arrived I was soaked, sick to my stomach from eating crudité and desperately in need of a nap.

The shoot was for publicity to promote his first solo album; She’s the Boss.  The session was going to be simple: no props, no set, two shirts and a pair of those infamous skinny jeans.  It was all about Mick.

We turned up the music and Mick immediately started posing.  It was going great and I was feeling fantastic, which of course is when it all started to fall apart.  I heard a crackle and then a loud pop behind me as I watched my main light explode.  I panicked knowing how interruptions can change the flow of a shoot.

I explained to Mick that it would take a few minutes to replace the light and asked him to stay on set.  As I directed my assistants behind me, I never once took my eyes off of him.  And it was just out of the corner of my eye that I saw my shot.
