A WHIRLWIND WEEK…as some of you know, if I have an inkling that a photo may be published in the local paper, I don’t like to scoop my photos. Yesterday a John Leguizamo shot appeared in INQlings so now I am free to write about his visit to the 17th Philadelphia Film Festival, which happened last Thursday.
Sal Mineo, James Dean, Marlon Brando, maybe, but not Too Wong Foo, Thank You Julie Neumar
JL and Director of The Take, Brad Furman posing with PFF staff. I do still have a few exclusive shots out and can’t show you the ones I took back stage. This one I did not send up to my agency, but it shows JL with guest services Mark James, and Debbie’s Fleishman’s son who’s name escapes me at the moment. Guest services has an important job to ferry the film festival guest to and from the event, navigating the crowds, making sure they have everything they need, ferrying them around, getting them to the press junkets and making sure they are fed. They are the gate keepers of the celebrities while they are in Philadelphia. Sponsers are incredibly important to the film festival, and I know the PFF folks appreciate them. In fact I myself thank them everytime I see them. Thanks to Marsecco Wines http://www.dracusecco.de/

OK this is why I need to do rapid shooting getting a few shots at a clip (I sometimes just shoot one at a time as I know the flash must hurt a tad); inevitably I get a shot where one of the subjects has their eyes closed.
OK one of these hot folks is on a children’s TV show, the kids of today are so lucky to see this eye candy, http://www.greerlange.com/KellyVrooman . On the left is Tim Dowlin who will be seen in Mark Webber’s ‘Explicit Ills’ in the coming months. The movie was filmed last year in Philadelphia. Then it was off to the next event at National Mechanic’s, a tattoo party. I almost got one.Here’s the gan from Tru skool productions http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=70068155 they were just hanging out
