Yesterday Bill & I did some outdoor nude shoot. With windshield it was -20C, completely amputating all nerves of my feet. It sounded so easy at first, but then when I soaked myself in the snow I took it back. I tried climbing up the hills of the construction sites & up the deer hunting platforms. The snow melted and my foot got sucked & frozen onto the metal surfaces, causing intense pain when ripping my feet off. I can't do treebranch chin-ups naked in the snow, but I can play pirates. Anyway, he was a nice guy, I was only expecting him to pay the standard 4-hour but instead got 75% more than I originally intended...he even bought me dinner, burnt me a CD & drove me home.

But because we had such a good conversation I forgot to pick up the CD after he burnt it, he forgot to tell me to pick it up too. Now he has to mail it to me. Now I have to wait anxiously.

But so far the "bonus" is already gone. The lock in my grandma's apartment is so rusted I snapped my key in 2 for trying too hard. Had to get a locksmith to break open the lock & replace it, costing $80. I already spent $25 yesterday night. Bought bus tickets. Yadiyadiyadah.

Now my blood is a little pumped & I want to get more modelling gigs.

yikes, rolling around in the snow. Umm, male anatomy seems too endangered by frostbite for a guy to even try that. ;)

I think it's not only males.

I bet the pics are very impressive; winter weather's severity makes for an interesting canvas.

or a hot asian?

both are probably invalid as the landscape will be back lit and no details will be seen.

I'm contemplating the possibility of having been naked outside yesterday. I'd want way more than a 75% premium and dinner. Fortunately for the wallets of photographers and the eyes of the world, nobody wants to see dumpy white guys naked in the snow.

Forget the cold. I'm from SoCal. When it get's cold around here (5 Deg F) I stay in my damn room.

what time where you doing the shoots at? early morning can give you incredible lighting

2005-03-06 17:33:05 ET

no, we started at 2-3 o'clock. I don't think he controlled the time well.

2005-03-07 22:09:57 ET

2-3? that's the worst possible time. this is why detailisation sucks on these photos

2005-03-08 08:02:54 ET

he's not the greatest photographer in the world, no.
