    So I got my first official job doing some modelling for a photographer who's a friend of a friend. I've unofficially done some work before for friends (half my friends are in art colleges), but nothing for a real photographer. I was at a friends opening for their new studio and this girl walked over to me and just asked me if I would help her out with this photo exhibit she's working on because she thought I "looked the part".

    I dont get exactly what she's doing, but from what I gather she's doing a series on the average male, and fashioning the photo's in ways that men would stereotypically see things...or something. Like some shots she is going to make look like comic books, some like pornography, beer ads. Its all meant to be critical of course, it sounds really cool though. But im kind of nervous because some of the shots she was describing are pretty, dare i say, racy. But im excited though!

    Sounds like a really cool opportunity. You never know what can happen with such things.

    You already have your "abercrombie-esque" pose down pat so you should be okay! LOL!

    Just don't do any photos your mom woudn't approve of! LOL!!

    haha yah we did the first day of shots yesterday, most are ok, but definitely not something im gonna bring grandma to, she'll get an edited tour. Ill post some here once i get copies, just maybe not the super out there ones, and unfortch I didn't get to put my abercrombie pose to good use, it just didn't "fit with the artists vision" or something I guess :P

    A star is born!

    Interesting stuff, from the sound of it.
    I will be very curious to see which part and style you have been cast in!

    haha thanks guys!

    And WaitintoRein, no it isn't something I aspire to do at all, i actually don't like getting my photo taken, which is so hypocritical since I drive my friends nuts with my camera. It really just kinda happened, like i said ive done bits here and there for people but nothing like this!

    p.s. got my spot and shooting tomorrow, the series ive been chosen for is "voyeurism", and apparently it involves a shower, and the pictures are going to be edited to look like comic book entries....I must say im a little worried...
