THE CALL

     I got a phone call from Bozzak, the photographer who invited me to take pictures.  He said he had shown the pictures he had taken around and had gotten “positive” feed back on them, one of them being from his contact with Victoria Secret.  I could feel I was blushing as I said “Oh my god, really?”.   He asked if I had thought anymore about it or if it was something I would consider doing.  I told him I had fun and didn’t think anything would come from it, but now hearing that someone liked it, it is something I would like to try again.  “Great” he said, “We can take some more pictures and prove it wasn’t just a fluke”.  I laughed and said “Yea”.

     He told me he had a small client that was looking to do a spread or an ad and figured if I was interested he would suggest me to them and see what they would say.  He said it was a “win-win situation, since it would help both them and me out.  With me being new, they wouldn’t need to pay as much as they would if they had a professional model work with them and would help me because I would be getting paid out if it”.  I replied “Yeah, that would be great.” trying to hide my excitement that I know I didn’t do a good job at.  He explained he would contact them and tell them about me, if they were ok with it, he asked if it would be ok if he set up an appointment for me to meet with them.  I replied again “Yeah, that would be great also.” my heart started to race and I could feel butterflies in my stomach.  He must have realized I was getting nervous again because he said I would have nothing to worry about when meeting them, that they had already chosen me and I would have to try and sell myself to them.  He added that he would also be there and take on any of the hard questions they might have, but he doubted they would have any.

     He explained a bit more about what to expect and what not to, then he said he would let me know how things went and would get back to me in a few days.  After saying good-bye and hanging up the phone, I think got the biggest smile I had ever had in my life.  I squealed out loud and said to myself, “I got to call the others!” picking up the phone as I began dialing.

Baggies.

… Early last week, Gin needed some models for some clothes he was designing. He asked Yumi and I if we would be interested in modeling his new creations for a advertisement. We both jumped at the chance and set a time where we could all meet. A few days later, Yumi and I met with Gin at a professional photography studio. We were very impressed by the whole layout. Gin had seperate dressing rooms for each of us. When I went into my own room, I saw that the outfit he wanted me to wear was neatly placed out on the table. They appeared to be “rave” style clothes which wasn’t a surprise to me, since Gin likes that sort of scene. I got dressed and met Yumi. We both were excited about the photo session that was about to happen. Gin had his assistant direct both of us to the background we were going to work with.

We took solo photos with each of us posing and then some shots of us posing together. Gin also had both of us dance so he could get some “action” shots as well. He never told us exactly what the advertisement was going to look like, but I wasn’t worried. Yumi and I both knew that he’s great with photography and he always comes up with creative ideas. After our session, we both changed back into our own clothes. Gin insisted to pay both of us, but we refused. He said if we wouldn’t take his money, to at least let him take us out to lunch. We agreed and went out to get some food.

I drove Yumi in my car and Gin took his car. We met at a American cafe style resturaunt. I noticed when Gin entered the resturaunt, that he had two bags with him. He each gave Yumi and I a bag and said these were the clothes that we just modeled. We were so surprised, that we each gave Gin a big hug for being so generous to us. I think all of us had fun with the whole photo session and I know it was quite productive as well. It was defnitely a good day that ended with good food and good friends.
