Photo Shoot With Kyle Cassidy

So the other day, I had a photo shoot with Kyle Cassidy.

Some of you might know him from his hilarious presentation at the Philly Geek Awards. Or due to his amazing work with folks like Neil Gaiman, Amanda Palmer, and countless others. Or maybe from his beautiful photography books. Check out War Paint. Right now.

I could ramble and rant about Kyle nonstop. Great guy, great photographer. Needless to say, I was pretty damn thrilled he agreed to take my photos.

I've always had this thing for Post It Notes and 8-bit mosaics. I made a big Space Invader (twice!) back at my old job (the first ended up on Kotaku), started to make one at Quirk (I gave up, they didn't stick well), and I've made a few attempts at small ones in my apartment. But I could never really capture what I wanted to with a camera.

Enter, a Kyle.

He took the pictures after a little over an hour of sticking Post Its up on a wall in the basement of Indy Hall. The shoot didn't take long, maybe a half hour or so... I lost track of time. I was smiling and laughing so damn much.

Why fancy new photos? Word on the street is I've got a book coming out. WHAT! More on that soon, promise.

My favorite from the shoot is above. Below, you'll find a number of other favorites and fun behind-the-scenes snaps. Enjoy!

A huge thank you to my pals over at Indy Hall. Not only for giving me the space for the shoot, but for taking the time to help me get all those Post Its up on that wall. Sean, Parker, Jake, Adam, Kara... seriously, you guys rule. And my foxy lady joined in. Also, my coworker at Quirk, Katie. I don't know how she did it, but her arrangements were far more perfect than the rest of ours.

And of course, huge thanks to Kyle and his photo crew. I couldn't be happier.

Getting silly.

Feeling awkward.

Trying to blend in.

Taking a break.

    I've ran into Kyle a few times in Philly, but I always feel like it would be weird if I was like "I KNOW YOU FROM THE INTERNET SO TALK TO ME."
