Copious Project | Behind The Scenes

you find lots of interesting things to do."

The world is a fun little place.  At Alt Summit I met a fascinating and bright woman named Shayna Kulik.  I started following her on twitter.  Around the beloved spring-cleaning time of year she posed a question on her twitter: "Should I sell my clothes on ebay or Copious?"  I did not know of this "Copious."  The moment I went to the website I knew I was hooked.  In the next 24 hours or so I had created an account with this new "social marketplace."  I blogged about it.  No one commented.  No one.  But people clicked on my store.  You all clicked enough that my little blog was bringing in the hits for Copious - at least enough for their stats-guy to notice.  

Kaitlyn Barclay, the community marketing manager, got in touch with me to be a part of the "Copious Closet."  That e-mail turned into a conversation about Copious, a few ideas I had for them and a mini brain-storm sesh.  Within days we had a Skype meeting.  A few more days and there was a trip planned.  In a matter of days Kaitlyn pulled together a full-day campaign ad shoot for Copious.  Designers, stylists, hair and make-up crew, models and a photographer from Maryland gathered together in San Francisco, just a short walk from Instagram's original studio and AT&T Park.  Curiosity and a few connections led to an incredible experience for me.  These women (and men!) are passionate, giving and motivated.  And just truly very, very kind people.  It was certainly a career highlight to be a part of this shoot!

I can't wait to reveal images from the shoot, but for now I thought it'd be fun to show you a few behind the scenes shots.  Enjoy!  And please do check out Copious... that's how this all started after all!  So, thanks everyone!
