I first encountered Gregg at a street fair six years ago. I thought he was hot, and so I took a few candid pictures, and then a few months later, he turned up online. I emailed him to tell him I'd taken his picture, and we became friends.
We ran into each other a few times over the next few years, but the friendship never really took on the "in person" weight that we thought it would, and eventually, we drifted a bit. Then in February of this year, he emailed me out of the blue to say he'd be in NYC and I suggested a photo shoot.
I was a little nervous because I was not feeling well when the day started. It was the day after my "off" shoot with Andrew, and I had slept for fourteen hours and was still not myself. It was upsetting because aside from the photoshoot, I was looking forward to seeing Gregg after all those years, and I almost had to cancel, but then miraculously, my illness passed before he arrived.
For the record, Gregg is one of the sweetest men I've ever met.
