I was sitting in the back of a car on the FashionMasters, White Collar shooting and in the back pocket of the seat was this mock up from the printer of the Dybula Fun campaign! I love it! It's awesome! I cant wait to get the catalog with the photos inside. It's so great--a style I dont have in my book. Kind of Alberta Feretti, Paolo Roversi blur with tartan coats and baroque settting. It's awesome!
My campaign and catalog with Kimberley is out! Wow! Hot photos--I can't believe this is what i look like with long hair. Telling secrets was the theme of the day and the photographer loved it. This was one of the coldest days that we ever had to shoot--it actually snowed outside. We were shaking to death and even the clients with their warm feather jackets were jumping up and down to not have their toes turn to ice. We shot near the Olympic stadium and Kimberley and I thought that we were going to be shooting IN FRONT of the stadium, but instead we only peeked over it in the distance laughing at our previous plans to shoot video report in front of it. I just do what I feel like when I wear the clothes and I cant really explain logically why I do things with my hands and eyes, but sometimes I catch myself and think--oh why are you doing that put your hand down. When I do the photographer generally yells at me, "No! Don't move!" and I have to put my hand back up in that position. I never know what they see really, but afterwards when I saw the photo on the screen the photographer leaned over and said, "You're telling secrets. I love it!" I love this outfit. It's actually difficult to get coordinated when you have to walk and the photographer wants your legs to be in the same way...it's 1...2...3...GO! 1...2...3...GO! over and over... I don't know why it happens...I just get these flashes in my head of the photo when I'm making the photo, and the feeling comes out of me and my body goes into some kind of movement. I really can't explain it, but it's what happened in this photo. I just pretended that we were two new york city chics shopping and snobby hanging out bad girls on the street in fur...hahhaha makes no sense I know! Kimberley and I were mo blogging it the whole time. I shot her when she was shooting. She shot me when I was shooting...now we will make the video for everyone to see the backstage freezing commentary!
JUMP! JUMP! JUMP! That's all you hear and the nnnnnnklllkkkkttttt FLASH! Of the lights and then the BEEP! Telling you to JUMP! again...I had to correct height cuz Kimberley and I are two different heights and so I had to lean a little to the side so we would look the same level. Small tricks like that help the photo look better when you are working with another model. If I were the smaller girl I would jump higher like Kimberley did to match my height. Of course, the higher you jump and more you lean to the side, the harder it is to land in 8 in heels on a slipperly concrete floor! Don't try it at home unless you are super trained model!
when i was in amsterdam, i went to see de boekers, my agency. the first thing that agencies do when you have new hair or a new look or come into town after a while, they take polaroids. in the page, polaroids used to be polaroid cameras. they were really forgiving and you could take really good polaroids and get booked for direct jobs where they fly you in. now a days, they use digital, so now suddenly you are there, no makeup, no brush, and the agency want to take your polaroids to show what you REALLY look like. well, there you go...not my best photo at all and no retouching allowed!
these were the polaroids taken in finland by my agency model boom. i like them so much better, but my agency in holland said my hair looked dry--so they took the polaroids above...sheesh. i thought i looked really good in these polaroids...so rock and roll:
i am wearing noni's tshirt that he made after diane pernet "ruined" or "crashed" fashion week in iceland (this is the title in icelandic what the tshir says, which was a scan from the most circulated magazine. she made it on the cover with the 7610 lifeblogging!)
