This picture was made on a shoot at a high end contact lens store for Allure Magazine. The store makes custom contact lenses for Hollywood movies and had pictures of celebrities they make contacts for all over the walls. I was commissioned to photograph the store and its owner early in the morning before the store opened. I also asked my friend Emily Crist to come on her way to because I wanted to also make this specific picture. I love photographing Emily and she is a contact lens master and a great friend so it all worked out. And... and the rest is history. — COREY OLSEN
