I met Suzy with her mum Lynn when I was shooting for a modelling agency out of my house in Brooklyn. They watched me stand up on a box to get some height and smack my head into a roof beam. Yep it hurt. I have no idea how many times I have shot with Suzie because it's been so many but this photo stands out for me as it was the first collaboration I had ever done with anyone. It was also one of the birth places of The Fashion Creative Collaborative Group. Suzie had already been around the world as an international model and knew how to model. Today as I write this, I have shot hundreds of models, but when I look back Suzy was one of the first and she owns it, as one of the best. Sometimes I meet up with her for advice on many things and I'm glad to have her on my contact list. The last time we met up she showed me how to do an Instagram story. It's still the only one I've done. Did I mention she makes the best scones? And she's a business woman running her own bikini label called Salt? This girl can do anything.
