So I have invested in some new computer hardware, not a much needed new iMac but a NAS for storing all my digital images. This will replace a rats nest of hard disks of various sizes currently residing under my computer desk. Have you noticed that when you buy a new-fangled gadget you believe will make your life easier it highlights deficiencies in other areas of your system and forces you into further credit card expenditure. Funny that.
Winter is over. I have no meteorological evidence of this it’s just that I’m fed up of freezing my nuts off and have issued a dictum to that affect. Okay we can all now start to think of going outside and actually enjoying ourselves but no mention of fucking gardening please.
Stilettos appear to make legs look better in photos but they can cause problems. I had one model fall down the stairs in them! Scared the shit out of me but thankfully she wasn’t hurt. Nowadays I ask models to put their heels on at the bottom of the stairs just in case they are not used to wearing them. Better safe than sorry methinks. On the other hand I know models who wouldn’t be seen dead out of high heels. I think they even wear them in bed!
Surprisingly I’ve decided to be a bit more proactive and check out the available talent earlier this year. Not much seems to have changed from recent times though. Suitable fresh faces are thin on the ground and are either too far away or too expensive. Having an extensive if one dimensional back catalogue of snaps to post means I could go a few years without arranging a new shoot and that looks likely unless there is a dramatic improvement in the situation.
