Here are few more photos from the season finale of The Pauly D Project. I had planned on posting some images from some of the shoots in Newport, but that will wait to til another day.

So Pauly sat in his old seat in Mr. Russo’s biology class. I particularly like the “Road 2 Success” on the wall in the background.

Mr. Russo thought it would be fun for Pauly D to show up at the Winter Bash to surprise the kids at his former high school.

After touring the high school, Pauly and Amanda went back to Pauly’s house to go over some business.

Then Pauly met the boys out to tell them the big news on how he was going to surprise his old school by guest deejaying at their winter bash.

So, next time, I’ll get some pix up from Pauly’s day out with his mother in Newport.

For the season finale of The Pauly D Project, Pauly D went back to Rhode Island to surprise his former high school by guest deejaying during their winter dance. In preparation for the big night, Jerry and Biggie had a lot of setup at the hotel where the dance was being held.

The students kept asking me and the 495 Productions crew if Pauly D was there. We had to tell them that their high school was picked to be part of an MTV show. For the most part they believed us. It’s a little hard to be discreet with 3 camera crews and a photog running around a high school dance.

Pauly D waits

After the show Pauly and the crew went back to a secluded room, where they played keep away with Jerry’s shoe.

Let’s hope there’s a season two. I had a great time shooting stills while they filmed the show in Rhode Island.
