John Nienhuis Milwaukee Wisconsin Lifestyle Photographer
The Night before Nienhuis
'Twas the night before shooting and all through the firm
The VP was nervous, the CD did squirm.
The employees were pacing, their worries did swell,
The shoot, they all feared, just might not go so well.
The unknown photographer they chose with such haste,
The budget they feared would all go to waste.
With jobs on the line and nowhere to turn,
The shoot appeared destined to a slow crash and burn.
When all of a sudden it seemed of thin air
An intern said, “Wait, don’t pull out your hair!
I have here the card of a shooter well known
For shots so darn good, I’ll go dial the phone!”
The producer was nestled all snug in her bed
Like a Bat Phone it rang ~ the phone, it was red.
She wrote down the info and called up the man
John answered the phone and said, “I’ll go get the van!”
Away the two flew and picked up another,
An assistant, a stylist and one or two other.
They drove to the building, a smile on each face
Working like elves to put their spin on the place.
The lighting was brilliant, the crew was first rate
The stylist curled hair, the employees looked great.
The schedule was set, Karen’s clipboard was hot
John finished early and said, “What else have you got?”
The employees were happy, their fears all were killed.
The shoot was so smooth, the prez was so thrilled.
The intern was hailed with shouts filled with praise
For hiring John's team, her prize was a raise.
As we go through our lives it’s important to note
The people that don’t see their jobs as just rote.
For a person like John is so very rare,
He loves what he does. Anyone. Anywhere.
Merry Christmas to all!
