I have recently realized that being a photographer’s model is never a walk in the park. Other than investing in the best eye wrinkle creams a model needs to have cosmetics that work best with her skin, clothes that she can put on just anywhere and the grace and pizazz to walk in thin high heels through a grassy park.
A couple of weekends ago I was part of another model shoot, this time under the tutelage of my mentor Rolly Magpayo. Myself and the majority of the D60KREW gathered at our house for the briefing and tutorials and in the afternoon we all trooped to the Nayong Pilipino for the “location shoot.”
Our models were Kates Ocampo, Kat Cefra and Sky Dizon. These girls shattered all my stereotyped notions of what models are. Kates, Kat and Sky were kalog, all-business and all fun at the same time, and while we sat at the briefing they began the long and tedious, but very interesting task of making themselves ready for the camera.
