So yesterday I modelled in an “Garden of Eden” themed photo-shoot, as Eve. It was the first nude photo-shoot I’ve ever done where I wasn’t also doing the shooting. Fortunately (unfortunately?) there was so much going on between work and traffic to get to the site, that I didn’t really have time to be nervous about it.
We met up at a Tim Horton’s on Queen Street, shook hands, introduced ourselves, and then proceeded to the site. He lead me down to the water treatment facility in East York, and then along the beach to where a river flowed down into the lake and a couple of logs lay on the sand. It was secluded enough that no one would see us there and populated enough that if I needed help, I could yell for it. Once we got there I texted my location to my boyfriend so he’d know exactly where I was.
The thing that surprised me the most about this shoot, was that it was only awkward when I was taking my clothes off… that and taping maple leaves to my crotch to mimic an olive leaf… Beyond that it was as though this was the way I always hung out with people. The photographer, Yunner, was very friendly and respectful, which made the experience all the more favourable. He was also very good at what he does (which is why I agreed to it in the first place).
The shoot went on for almost 2 hours, and now I have a new modelling experience under my belt—or lack thereof 😉
I should get the pictures within about 2 weeks. I will post some of the the more PG rated ones in the modelling section here. Beyond that, I will update with the time and place of the art exhibit.
