Shooting stills for the film “My One And Only,” starring Renee Zellweger and Kevin Bacon, was a truly wonderful experience. As a period piece, the movie’s sets and wardrobe were spectacular to shoot to say nothing of the talent, quality and caliber of the actors and crew. I am most grateful to Renee Zellweger for allowing me to photograph her grace and style. She was an immensely kind, intelligent and considerate woman and a true professional throughout the filming.
It was great to have the opportunity to witness firsthand the “stage presence” that Kevin Bacon, Chris Noth and Logan Lerman brought to the set.
The images I shot on this film reflect the elegant lighting style of Marco Pontecorvo. Marco shot the TV series “Rome” for HBO. His father directed “The Battle of Algiers,” a film classic I studied in college.
I am also grateful to Aaron Ryder, the film’s producer, for hiring me to work on this project and to the director, Richard Loncrain, for allowing me to photograph his film. Diane Slatterly, the film’s PR liaison, was immensely generous in sharing her still photography expertise on both the production and distribution sides of the film business.
A gallery of the still photos I shot for this film has been posted on the My One And Only official movie site. I look forward to seeing it on the big screen.
