This is me circa 1994. It was taken for a Tom Foolery ad by Rudy Giscombe (at that time a photographer for the local weekly newspaper, the Chico News & Review, that I advertised in). Rudy can make anyone smile, and he always made me laugh, which was necessary because I HATE having my picture taken.
Actually, I hate having my picture taken only once, when something like 50-60 shots are necessary to get one decent one. Nobody ever has the time, patience, or reason to take 50-60 pictures of me, therefore they stop at one. And that one always stinks.
I hate having my picture taken by anyone but Rudy.
