Jim Carrey - Los Angeles
Shot for Esquire Magazine. I was on a tear - this was my third straight Esquire cover in a row. I was in the makeup room asking Jim what his rubbery face was going to look like when he got older. He picked up some clothespins and we took off from there. One of the highlights of this shooting was the sweetest young man from the Make-A-Wish program. Jim always included these kids on our many shoots together. The child wanted to play photographer. Jim said that was fine, but he had to direct him. So the kid climbs up on an apple box behind my camera and I showed him what button to push. He looked into the camera and the room got quiet. Nervously quiet. Jim was standing there for a long while as the boy kept looking intently into the viewfinder. Suddenly he erupted yelling, “GIVE IT TO ME JIMMY!” Everyone - Jim, all the crew, the people from Make-A-Wish Foundation, the team from Esquire - and especially me were all suddenly on the ground gasping for air….laughing and crying...it was all too much. Possibly the single most beautiful moment at any shooting in my whole career.
