Had a manicure today so my nails look pretty and shiny for tomorrow because I'm meeting up with Barry (Gallegos) for a photo shoot. I have done a few shoots with Barry over the years and I consider him a friend, he is good at what he does, always happy, has good ideas, never weird, creepy or pushy, oh and is good behind the camera! So we should have fun and hopefully get a a few good shots and I can channel my inner diva supermodel.
This pic is from our very first shoot, we did it at Lake Mead.
I had a shoot set for the other day but I cancelled because the photographer was rude and pushy, I knew that there would be a conflict of interest and that we wouldn't get along so I told him I didn't want to go ahead with the shoot. I could do shoots everyday if I wanted to, so I don't need to deal with creeps. I don't mind doing bikini, lingerie or topless shoots, even nude but I go for implied or tasteful nudes and I could tell that this guy wanted something that I'm not willing to deliver. I don't let guys bully me. Neither should you! One of my first shoots in Vegas I had, I wore a pink net top and all of a sudden out of the blue, the photographer said, "Do you want me to suck on those (meaning my nipples) to make them hard". I gave him an icy and stern Easter European glare and said, "NO". Like WTF and totally GROSS! How pervy and inappropriate, it was not some kind of a porno shoot so I don't know what got into him and I always keep things very professional and expect the same in return.
I actually read an article a few days ago about something similar.....here is the link if you are interested.
