Stormtroopers in the corn.

Jonny got the job

This is just awsome. Jonny got hired as a photographer today.
BECAUSE of the Stormtroopers in Love photo's. The guy didnt care about a resume, did'nt even want to see it...he was such a fan of the Stormtroopers in love photos, and meeting Jonny in person. That he hired Jonny on the spot.


We're heading out now to take more photo's to celebrate!

A little update on stuff

Yesterday was our 11 month anniversary!

So we heard back from the CBC, they're going to call us in September when they start taping the show. SWEET! and they said we could arrange a time before hand to come down and get a proper/personal tour of the CBC and studios for helmet photo's. WOW eh? pretty cool man.
Our publisher sent us some examples of Book proposals, so we're gonna work on something over the weekend.

All very exciting. We are just thrilled. We have a ton of new idea's for pictures which we're brainstorming for the weekend as well. Its been one hell of a week and its just getting better and better.

Jonny's been working on a drawing for Gramma Verna. She wanted Jonny to do a drawing for a memorial card after she passes away. ( which won't happen for a long long time, but Verna wants to be prepared) Jonny's finally finished one that Red absolutely Loves, ...So we'll see what Verna thinks of it on Sunday when we go to see her for Lunch.

Three Witches.

Stormtroopers in love.... The Book?

Well, it just gets more exciting as the week goes by. We're talking to a book publisher right now, who's very excited about publishing a book about our photo's. Jonny's looked at the company's site, and they publish alot of books that we've seen before. So it looks like this is the Real deal and will really happen.

And Jonny's gotten a Job offer as a photographer because of the photo's.... Going to meet with them this week. :)

A lady named Hilary from THE CBC! tracked us down via youtube this morning.... and wrote us this:

Hey guys. Love the stormtrooper photo series. I work for a tv show in Toronto that runs a feature segment on interesting people with quirky/unusual habits. I'd love to hear a little more about the stormtrooper obsession (?) and your other projects, to see if we can build a piece around you two.

WOW!... hope its legit. It would be awsome to be on The CBC. Wont get too excited yet....we'll see how all this goes. I wrote her back a couple of paragraphs about Red and I...about how we met, and our art work and how much fun we have together. I hope this works out to be something really cool. RedandJonny on Televison!
keep your fingers crossed for us! I'll update when I have more info.

Hot Stormtroopers in love

BB pal Bonnie says,

Red and Jonny are are married artists who live in Ontario, Canada -- who like to photograph themselves wearing stormtrooper helmets frolicking on the beach and in the grocery store. If you're the type of fan who likes to look at bikini girls wearing stormtrooper helmets, then you're in luck.
Link. I think some of my favorite photos from these guys are in their "Country Stormtroopers" photoset: Link. Absolute faves: one and two.
