It’s always exciting going to set up in different Atlanta locations for the day. Recently I had the opportunity to work at Turner Field for the day. The pictures I’m sharing with you in this post are actually from a few different shoot days. It seems when I work at Turner Field, the weather is very cooperative. It couldn’t have been any more gorgeous the last time I was there. These days on set require a lot of walking and location changes.
I usually take a lot of pictures of set life and the locations where we shoot for the day. After years of being a makeup artist I don’t have many pictures of me working. I can admit to having several pictures of the back of my head, or of my arm sticking into a shot wielding a makeup brush or taming some flyaway hair. Most makeup artists and fashion stylists are used to this. When we step into a frame we are facing the talent which means our backs are to the camera. When a test shot gets taken I cringe. We were shooting in the Braves dugout. On this day I was lucky that a member of the crew snapped a great shot of me working.
Turner Field is an amazing location in Atlanta to film at. Over the course of 12 years of being a makeup artist in Atlanta. I’ve worked on many shoots at “The Ted”. I was allowed to set foot on the grass during a shoot one time. The grounds crew is always present. They work very hard to keep the field beautiful. If you’re shooting there, don’t step on the grass. Don’t even think about walking on the grass. Don’t look at the grass, I’m just kidding. They crew is always there doing a great job. Whether it’s January or August, the diamond always looks fantastic.
I have to give a special thanks to Chip Caray and Joe Simpson. They are the tv broadcast announcers for the Braves. They were so kind to take a moment of their busy time to pose for this shot with my son. This was a great day for him not only to visit the announcing booth, but as my son put it “He had the Braves Turner Field experience of a lifetime”.
