Have you seen the movie, Social Network"?

GreetingCats had a Facebook account when it was not open to the public. Then, over time, it became popular among cat lovers around the world very unintentionally.

Then, I came out clear and told them that I was not a cat lover, and deleted all the friends.

Now I regret it and I miss my cat loving friends and want them back.

I had the privilege to work with some of the world's greatest photographers including David Lachapelle, Enrique Badulescu, Elaine Constantine, Sheila Metzner, and Ellen Von Unswerth for commercial campaigns for Japanese fashion department store, PARCO, Shiseido, among others.

I found this rare photograph from 1995 campaign for PARCO by Ellen Von Unswerth. What's noteworthy in this photograph is that it features Estella Warren who was discovered by her, and became internationally recognized super model ever since. Watch her rare appearance in the PARCO commercial I produced HERE.

She is one of the girls in bathing suits.

The video is no longer sold but can be found time to time on auction sites. The DEMO FILMS has a brief excerpt from the film.
