On CBS “This Morning” I was excited to see a segment with Rita Moreno. She is only one of 12 people who have been awarded an Oscar, an Emmy, a Grammy and a Tony. She will now also be a Kennedy Center Honoree for her “Lifetime Of Artistic Achievement”.
During the interview on CBS, the link below, as they walked around New York City, they met one man who upon meeting her said he had “goosebumps”. Well I can totally relate the same feeling when I had the opportunity to meet and photograph Rita on the set of the movie “Six Dance Lessons In Six Weeks“. As a standout star of the great American Opera “Westside Story”, she and ‘Westside Story” are embedded in my mind and in my heart.
By the way I must tell you that Rita Moreno is as nice, as fun, as talented and enthusiastic as you can possibly imagine. Here is one of the photographs I shot that has been released. And here is the link to the CBS interview… http://cbsn.ws/1SvvVSK
I must say that it is very fun to see my photographs in places like the Hollywood Reporter despite the fact that I have been published many thousands of times over.
Go see the movie this weekend just so you can see my photographs in the end credits as well as my name! OK you will also see great names such as Gena Rowlands, Cheyenne Jackson, Rita Moreno, Julian Sands, Jacki Weaver, Kathleen Rose Perkins, Anthony Zerbe. And the work of legendary cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond. Yes all that and it is great fun. Check the schedule on the website at http://sixdancelessonsmovie.com. Thanks!
