Today I had a Musician Portrait Project shoot with Blind Melon. They canceled last minute. The reason given was "massive guestlist". It has been scheduled for three weeks and I only find out a little while before that it cannot happen. Of course, I am extremely disappointed. I even turned down shoots that have been offered since this was scheduled. At those moments it really didn't matter because this was Blind Melon. Now I guess it did. These are the ups and downs of doing my Musician Portrait Project and being a music photographer. Always will be a difficult industry to gain some respect in.
While I'll get over this it did give me time to reflect. I'm glad to have a few musicians that I love working with because of their wonderful music and mutual respect. Thankfully a few of them are coming up this month so that should relieve the bad taste in my mouth from this evening. Plus there is always something to do. Just because a shoot was canceled doesn't mean I had nothing. Since I will not be home most of this coming week, I wrote many email drafts and updated some things on my websites.
On to the next one.
