At my internship during the summer of 2016 at Interstate Batteries®, I had the privilege to work with Jon Simkins, the in-house photographer, and Brenda Lyon, one of the in-house art directors. While working with them in the photography studio, I observed and assisted Jon and Brenda in photographing hand held car starters, a product Interstate sells in their All Battery Centers®. There came a point when they needed someone to hold the car starter by hand to show that it has the power to start a car while being held in your hand. This is when my life changed, and I started my “career” in hand modeling.
