So I got “secured” for another modeling job. M is doing a brochure for some company that helps people to sleep. The word is she wants to do a shot of a guy snoring/sleeping in bed with the woman sitting up with messy hair and looking tired. There’s going to be one more shot that I don’t know about. Supposedly they want it to be diverse meaning I will either have a black or asian spouse in the shot with me. One possible lead on who that might be but I don’t know. The cool part is I’m actually getting paid for this one.
As for the comp card, I haven’t bugged M about it since we met about it like 2 weeks ago. I’m in no hurry for it. I still have doubts about doing it professionally through an agency. It seems like a full time job from the sites I’ve been to. It almost seems if you’re on-call 24/7 to go to try-outs or whatever they call it. Not sure I’m up for all that.
I’ve been looking on istockphoto and there are some really gorgeous pictures on there. I actually went to a site tonight and recognized a business shot I had seen on there. That REALLY made me want to do that. That would just be so cool for someone to use one of my pictures somewhere. And it’s not seeing my face plastered everywhere, I don’t know, it’s like I just want to make other people’s products and services look good for them. Does that sound weird? I just need to find someone that can take pictures like that for me–for free! I’ve thought about putting some of the shots from my comp card on there and see how it does but the whole thing about who owns the pictures–the photographer or model especially since no one got paid to do either service. I’m guessing we could split the profits–you get 50 cents and I get 50 cents, you get 50 cents and I get 50 cents…lol
