When I work on location we often start at sunrise and finish work after sunset. Because of Miami’s amazing light and climate, clients from all over the world choose to shoot their catalogues and advertisement campaigns in Miami.
I want to feel my best when I’m in front of the camera as my mood is captured in every shot. It can be pretty hard on the body to pose in the sun all day so I always make sure I drink lots of water to stay hydrated. I also watch what I eat and only pick food that is going to give me energy, not rob me from it.
During a shoot last Sunday, the catering service offered some white flour products and processed foods such as white bread, crackers, white rice, cupcakes etc. I skipped all of those and instead ate a salad, lots of veggies and a yummy piece of chicken. Even though the cute little cupcakes seemed like a perfect one bite dessert, I had a cup of honey sweetened tea take care of my “after lunch” sugar craving.
I know this all sounds very disciplined but as soon as I got home I had THE best Tandoori chicken with rice and veggies followed by a delicious chocolate dessert…..it’s all about balance 😉
