100 People to Shoot Before I Die 
9th-May-2006 07:56 pm
Helena Bonham Carter
Alright so you've probably looked at the subject and gone, 'crap she's gonna go completely crazy on our arses!' but that is not the case. I've randomly mentioned in my LJ a few times people that I would love to have as a subject to photograph. So, while I'm really missing my SLR camera, and chatting to a friend on MSN who is on this list... I decided to actually make a list so it's no longer just floating around in my head. It's all people. Celebs - celebs on my flist - friends - family, I probably won't make the whole list in one go. But I am aiming for it to be 100. People can be repeated. As in I could want to do a photoshoot of one person on their own - or that person with other/s, or both. So yeah, we'll see how this goes. This is typically a dream, then again I could actually cross things off as I go. :P They are in no particular order, just listed them as I thought of them. If they're in italics, they're a friend or family member... or you know someone who's not a celebrity. Just so you don't think you should know the person, and go googling or whatever.

*giggles* I'm so glad you're so excited!!

I have some themes in mind for some shoots. Not all. Yours are all kinda crazy ideas in my head. There's one I'd like to do with clothing contradicting your environment. Mostly like, do a few where I get you to dress very sophisticated... possibly a suit.. but then have you sitting in a classroom or mucking around in a playground. Then to go with those do it opposite and have you dressed as a kid and all muddy in a board meeting or something.

Random idea. *shrugs*

i am so so honored to even have made the list.

i LOVE photoshoots - shooting of course, but love being shot. Not in just a, "okay go climb that tree and smile" kind of way, but in a "get dressed up, have your makeup like this, we have a theme here" kind of serious way. i need to be shot in my prom dress. or something equally as amazing. and i want to do part of it at night - wearing sunglasses. how's that sound? we can do other fun things. like OOOOh one on a beach or something like Marilyn Monroe used to. in fact yeah, look at her pictures - she has the most gorgeous photoshoots ever.

you need to mix 2 with 5, definitely, and also 2 with 13 (OMG I SAID THIS BEFORE I GOT TO 64. SDKJHFDSA NVM. PERFECT.) and LMAO 101.

these are my fave people:
5, 6, 11, 13, 24, 29, 31!!, 32, 34, 49, 64 OBV, 71, 74, 80, 83, 85 (FAMOUS BALLET DANCER FTW. SHOOT ME WITH HIM TOO.), 87, 90 (omg cute), & 95 (YES. great combo).

so frickin entertaining. great great choices.

lol I was totally going to kill you if Reba wasn't on this list.
12th-Apr-2007 10:21 pm (UTC)
I thought you would... I thought of her at like 10... but I seriously thought of you and decided to be sneaky. And I kept thinking of her. So I was like, 'as long as I don't forget'. And I got to 100 and was all... dude... REBA
12th-Apr-2007 10:39 pm (UTC)
This is fabulou. I love it.

I am still in love with Robert Redford- like right now.Even though he is old. MY love for him is eternal.

Have you seen Barefoot in teh park with him nad Jane?Or the way we were with Barbara.

Oh Robert- I lvoe you even ithout Paul Newman.
13th-Apr-2007 05:42 pm (UTC)
I haven't seen Barefoot in the Park... I really should... because it's a Redford/Fonda fan MUST. So the fact that I haven't seen it is... you know... SACRILAGE!
13th-Apr-2007 02:47 am (UTC)

I would love to be able to see you and actually do something like this.

This post, by the way, completely brightened my day. You are amazing; you're aware of that, right?

13th-Apr-2007 05:47 pm (UTC)

I'm gonna buy a notebook and write down themes for everyone. Or at least crazy ideas.

I am, in fact, aware of that. :P

Dude! I'll call you when I get the shoot with the people you love and then, you can give me your story idea and I'll do the shoot to match it!! Then like... when you're writing you have pretty photos to look at!!

Cos dude... #98 was so for a story idea of mine :P
13th-Apr-2007 03:44 pm (UTC)
Oh wow. What a list :D

How did you manage to keep it to 100?
13th-Apr-2007 05:58 pm (UTC)
Well I decided to keep it to 100 because... I actually thought I wouldn't make it... but because these 'before you die' lists work out that way. And I stopped it at 100 because I figured if I managed to shoot EVERYONE on this list then I'd easily get any subject I wanted after that :P
15th-Apr-2007 02:58 am (UTC)
Told you Hell would totally love to do a photoshoot ;) And Charlotte would probably do it too!
Me,.err....no. Sorry love!

But....if Mary, Alan, Emma, Hugh or Debra were there....! ;)
love the list !
15th-Apr-2007 03:00 am (UTC)
I forgot Megan!!!!!!
15th-Apr-2007 08:08 am (UTC)
I'll start your list of people to ACTUALLY shoot.

1. arnold schwarzenegger - I REALLY don't like his movies.
2. Nicole - girl at work who is mean to me
3. The person who created banana bread - cause it's making me fat.

15th-Apr-2007 11:23 am (UTC)
Awww, I think I'll leave Arnie... seeing he's in politics and married o a Kennedy... he's gotta go at some point right?

I shall get onto the other two right away ;)

I love your list! I hope you don't mind me bringing up a 2+ yr old post, but it's the first time I've seen it.

How many people have you gotten to mark off since you wrote it?

23rd-Jun-2008 10:15 pm (UTC)
It's fine, go frolic in the random old entries.

I haven't marked anyone off yet. I spend a lot of time working on ideas. Although I have done a photoshoot with #67 who happens to be my brother. But that was a couple of years ago and I want to see what else I can do with him other than make him look like a 5yo runaway. :P And I have done #27. A friend. Lol I didn't even realise she was on there, I might change that.

At least you know how crazy I am now.
