..was Action Jackson.
I was on a portrait assignment shooting a young lady named Celeste when this gentleman sat down to observe. He first asked if she (Celeste) was going to be putting on a show (She did look like the lead singer of a punk rock band.). I said no, and explained that we were taking photographs for her modeling portfolio. I showed him a few of the shots we had captured on my camera's LCD and he was impressed. Knowing that he liked what he saw, I asked if I could shoot his portrait. He kindly agreed. I introduced myself and asked for his name. He paused, thought for a minute, replied with "Action Jackson" and we shook hands. I was pretty sure that wasn't his name, but, I liked what he had come up with. I only took three frames, I knew I had gotten the shot (Once you've got it, you've got it. No need to keep shooting.). Action was very relaxed in front of the camera and his eye contact was magnificent. Action had confidence, dressed neatly and was well mannered. I thanked him for the opportunity to take his photograph and shook his hand one more time. He said I should get back to work and went on his way.. Thank you Action Jackson.
